Re: [gedit-list] gedit developers recruitment

Hi James,

Thanks for your interest.  Here is some reading material:

And here are some rough steps to follow:

1)  Get stable gnome2 on your system some way (packages, sources, etc.)
2)  Get gedit from CVS (instructions on page above)
3)  Write lots-o-code.  Send patch to Paolo, and he will review it and
possibly commit it to CVS.

It is quite common for new hackers to have their patches bounced several
times before finally being accepted.  Don't be discouraged by it, it
happens to everyone (or was it just me?!!).  Most maintainers (esp. Paolo)
are always happy to tell you what they would like changed, etc.  Once you
get a better feel for the coding style and design of the project, things
will move more smoothly.
