Contribution Philosophy

Recommended Posts

I've been working with osCommerce for a couple of weeks now and have installed it and added many of the great contributions in the contribution section. I've found a couple of areas that I needed to customize as well.

 

What I don't quite understand is, do the contributions eventually get rolled into the main source tree of osCommerce? I know that not all could as they may be specific to someones needs, but many are fairly general. Is there a list that is maintained of contributions that are slated to be rolled into the main source distribution?

 

Also, is there an "unofficial" distro that someone maintains that contains many of the high profile contributions? This would save me a lot of time and let me focus on enhancing the product rather than patching it to meet my needs.

 

Thanks

Ian Davis has a snapshot that he maintains with 10 or so mods. Do a search through his posts and you should find the link.
