The Benevolent Open Source Maintainer

Sam Rawlins recently was awarded the Ruby Association’s 2012 Grant to help fund his work on Creosote, a mathematics package for Ruby... Sam reached out to us recently to let us know about a blog post he just wrote entitled “Checklist for the Benevolent Open Source Maintainer”.

He covers the obvious stuff like documentation, a Readme, and a good test suite. But he also brings up stuff you might forget, like setting up screencasts, an irc channel, or a mailing list.

Check out Sam’s blog post for the full list...
