I'm new to this forum and I know that starting a topic as your first action as a newbie might be a bad idea... but I'll give it a try.
So first of all... a very big THANK YOU to all of the active developers here. I've been visiting this forum and the Project Apollo wiki for quite some time now and even though it's hard to follow the process of this big project I really appreciate how everyone is trying to commit himself to this project as much as he (or maybe even she) can!
I was trying to find out how one could become a developer for NASSP. I've got some (little) experience in C++ and OOP and am really interested to get involved in this project, but it's really hard to find a good first step. I don't want to break anything, just provide help, if I can. I couldn't find something helpful on the forums. That's why I opened this thread.
After reading the ORDEAL Development Thread (http://www.ibiblio.org/mscorbit/mscforum/index.php?topic=1245.0
), I figured out that you'd probably need to build your own modules to see the results of the latest development. So uhm yeah, that would probably be a neat starting point. However, the wiki states that for building modules, it assumes "you already are a developer for NASSP". Am I missing something here?
Is there another step I need to do first?
I never worked on any open source project so far, so I don't wanna do trial and error. Maybe we could use this thread to give potential developers a better chance of joining the project... or we discuss how to improve the wiki to achieve this.
Okay, I just figured out the very first step. Probably everyone of this forum knows this, but anyways: If someone wants to join as well, here's what you do first:
I'd suggest, you don't post it somewhere, but PM the admins of this forum. But of course, before one does this, the admins first would have to agree to this.
