WordPress core contributor, web developer, and speaker Michael Fields has created a section of his blog to list his contributions to the WordPress project, and has done so using a custom taxonomy. Fields is using a custom post type called “Bookmarks” that also has a taxonomy called “Bookmark Type” with an item called “Core Contributions” which is where he posts all of his work within the WordPress Trac.
The new page on his blog explains why he chooses to submit patches to the WordPress project, which he began doing in late 2010:
I use WordPress for pretty much everything web-related these days and in the winter of 2010, I finally got the nerve to start submitting patches to core. Below is a list of all of the contributions that I have made that have been accepted. Some of these patches reflect code completely written by me while others are comprised of a community effort with multiple developers working out the solution. It feels really good knowing that I have been able to contribute to such a great project. Open Source FTW!
Do you list your contributions to WordPress on your blog? Does Fields’ example give you any ideas? Personally Field’s new page (and his entire Bookmarks section) has inspired me to set up something similar on my own blog. How about you?
