In my quest to do whatever I can to help out the Jewelbots team I was poking around their various github repositories and bumped into a problem I knew I could solve. There was an issue with their gulp build pipeline where it would error running one of the gulp tasks. I forked the project, recreated the error and spotted the problem almost immediately. A simple matter of pointing to a file in the wrong directory was the culprit. A quick path change fixed it, and we were good to go.

I replied to the issue about how to solve it and offered to make a PR. Apparently it had been fixed locally but never pushed so a PR was requested, which I made, and it was merged in right away.

This is how you open source!

So excited to see stuff moving quickly with Jewelbots! Literally 5 days after I made my pull request to extend the functionality of the Buzzer, it becomes available in the latest firmware!

It’s not my code, but it is my suggestion, so I’m calling it a win!

Thanks ScottD! You rock!
