Yesterday I submitted my first patch to the subtext project. While I have created a couple of skins for the blogging engine I wanted to contribute more. Within subtext you have the option to add links to categories. These are usually used for blog lists which usually link to a friends site, coworker or a contact.
An example of a list from Simone Chiaretta’s blog:
What is XFN?
Xhtml Friends Network uses an attribute of the a href tag called “rel”, examples:
<a href=”http://www.siphilp.co.uk” rel=”me”>Si</a> or <a href=”http://www.kemponline.co.uk” rel=”friend coworker”>Andy</a>
This patch allows you to assign a relationship to each link.

Creating and submitting the patch was easy thanks to Scott Hanselman’s post – How to contribute a patch to an Open Source Project like DasBlog.
I hope to contribute more to the subtext project :).
I have written a variety of posts about subtext which can be found here.
