A few days ago, Jon Skeet announced that he was starting an open source project with a unknown name (that found itself named Noda Time) that aimed to provide a .NET equivalent to Joda Time.

As there were clearly some openings, I proposed to join, and there is now a Google Group for the project. Jon has great expectations for the project itself but also for the methodology. He wants that project to be model:

I want it to be a shining example of how to build, maintain and deploy an open source .NET library.

I’m really eager to see how this will go. I think this is a great opportunity for me to learn a lot of new stuff and meet people.

Next steps for me are to keep up with the ongoing discussions and learn more about Joda Time as I never used it.

I hope I can prove myself useful!
