[MacRuby-devel] Getting involved in MacRuby development

Hi Maxime!

Help is of course always welcome.

MacRuby is a huge project, and there is a lot to do & fix. There are LLVM related stuff, but there is also a lot of pure C-Ruby & C++ involved, as well as some Objective-C runtime here and there (in C) :-).
As for how to get started, I would say you first need to read HACKING.rdoc as well as README.rdoc.

If you really want to work on 0.5 related code, you can peek into the TODO file, there is a list of what we really want for the 0.5 final release.

We also have our list of open bugs : http://www.macruby.org/trac/report/1

Of course, not everything is easy. I can't really say for sure which one you should get stared on, but maybe somebody out there on the ML could tell you :-).

Good luck!

I have been hearing about MacRuby for many months and I want to have a more proactive role in the project. As far as my abilities go, I have been using Cocoa for many years and am currently working with Ruby on Rails at work, during the day. I have no prior experience with LLVM, but learning about it for a real-world project is a great motivation for me to get up to speed.
