I want to contribute to your project, how do I start?
@sir I attempted a bugfix in aerc, kinda feels like it fell into a black hole. Probably because I don't understand sr.ht very well yet.
@sir Very applicable. Good post.
I have learned this recently. I am most productive when scratching an itch, and don't get much done when I am aimlessly trying to find something to contribute to.
@sir I did send an email, I believe. Should that be reflected in the web ui somewhere?
@sir yup. Every commit I've made to the Go standard library has gone via gerrit, so I understand that there is life-after-pull-requests. Thanks for the link to the web-UI where I can verify that my email made it. The last one didn't, but now I've got someplace to verify whether the next one makes it or not.
@reto I'm not "adding" a panic, I'm behaving exactly as the previous regexp does. The "normal" thing to do would be to use a MustCompile() and let it panic that way, but I was following the extant style. It's not unusual to panic() on a failed regexp compile in Go that's inside an init(). Not a panic of my invention, either in aerc or Go best practice.
@sir That's exactly the kind of advice I needed! Thanks!
