Getting involved as contributor...

I would like to get involved in the development of this blog engine as a contributor if possible. How can I do that? Are you accepting more contributors?

Hi GQAdonis,
We've just released the first production version of blogengine, so we need to sit back and evaluate everything before taking in new devs. In the mean time, there are many ways to contribute. Check out this page http://www.dotnetblogengine.net/page/contribute.aspx and thank you very much for the interest.

In the meantime, I am working on some extensions to the BlogEngine that I am making available through my "Invictus" project. Of the more interesting things I have there already are the following:

Custom BlogProvider that uses ORM
Gravatar server control (for rendering Gravatars as per their HTTP interface)
A "branched" version of BlogEngine where I have made one or two MINOR modifications
An example web project containing the extensions, etc.

I am still tracking a problem related to handling blog comment persistence, which I should have resolved sometime today if I get the time to work on it.

My personal blog is a live running example of my ongoing work in this area. Like you, I will be eating my own dogfood...

Please feel free to review, comment, etc. on anything you find there in the next few days and weeks....
