Hey all I was talking with @Aaronontheweb about creating a screencast documenting doing a proper Pull Request from Akka point of view. I was thinking of doing examples this using Git Hub for windows, Git bash and SourceTree. If anyone is interested, since I know @Aaronontheweb has his plate full, to review a screencast script to ensure that I am not missing anything please let me know. My plan is to create a repo for the script , potential diagrams and slides for this project. It will definitely be an iterative process and I want to be as detailed as possible so any input would be welcome. Thanks,
Aaron Stannard

@jcwrequests I think it'd be a super good idea - will definitely help new contributors. And it's a best practice in general for Github OSS
I'm sure folks would be happy to review it once you have a draft up - I'll personally make time to check it out no problem

@jcwrequests that is a really great idea. I'm not an expert on pull-requests (never done one, never had to). But I am more then happy to provide feedback from a n00b perspective. Once the vid is up.

Is this really the correct way to do this?

 protected override void PreStart()
   {
      var producer = Context.System.GetExtension<DIExt>();
       childActor = Context.ActorOf(producer.Props("MyActor"));
      base.PreStart();
   }

Why cant I do this?

protected override void PreStart()
    {
        var producer = Context.System.GetExtension<DIExt>();
        childActor = Context.ActorOf(producer.Props<MyActor>());
        base.PreStart();
    }

I've just installed Akka.Remote, is it normal that it already pulls down Google Protobuf and pukes folders and license stuff into my project?

Blame nuget for that, akka remote has a ref to protobuf . So both nuget packages get installed
And protobuf package does that when installed

hmm funny, Just slammed head first into issue #706 Good to see its already registered as an issue. However I am unsure about what the status is now, since @Aaronontheweb opened it again.

@Danthar I just haven't merged the code that resolves this issue in yet - was planning on doing that yesterday but ended up tackling some remoting issues instead

Ah like that. Ok. Once you merged that code, will the nuget packages be updated automatically or should I build from source?

you'll need to build from source for now - we're going to do a bigger release next week that has all of the official nuget packages

@smalldave can I pull in your remoting terminator changes?
