Or you interested in communication in a form of functional/integration test and code fixing it? Anyway if i commit code which fixes the bug can my name be added to source code file "@author" list?
Sorry, I didn't look in the forum for a while.
Sure, that sounds very interesting! I guess such a refactoring would have to be applied step-by-step. Let me also check with Łukasz, maybe you could work together.
If you change any code, of course you can add yourself to @authors. You'll have to sign the CLA for Hibernate, though: https://cla.jboss.org/index.seam
Definitely you should be listed as @author :). This way community is able to contact you regarding issues in the code or suggest improvements.
What I would suggest is just to leave a short explanation why certain pattern is used, this way we spend less time on reverse-engineering. Feel free to contact me directly.
Ok. I'll contact as fast as first patch will be ready.
