gEDA is run by volunteers, so these are volunteer (read: unpaid) tasks. Please consider helping out. Thank you.
Should this list be combined with todos ?
Somebody who is familiar with the generation/management of netlists is needed to help work on and improve gnetlist. Whether the existing gnetlist is used or if a total rewrite is needed is always an open option. Must be extremely familiar with UNIX/C/C++ programming.
Symbol Library Hacker
Somebody is needed to help get the symbol library up to the current symbol spec
. This individual would also help in the integration of new symbols and making sure that they meet the current symbol spec
. The task of getting the symbol library up to spec
is a combination of manual effort and automated updating (this sort of automated updating lends itself very well to a person with shell/perl scripting familiarity).
geda GUI Hacker
Somebody who knows C, UNIX, and GTK+ programming is needed to work on the gEDA GUI
(the program named geda). This program has been stalled for the past year due to the lack of manpower. Whether the existing geda is used or a total rewrite is needed is always an open option.
Windows Port Hacker/Manager
Somebody with expertise building and testing gEDA on UNIX systems and familiarity with the MS
Windows 95/98/NT platform is needed to manage the gEDA Windows port. Testing, bug fixing, packaging, and releasing of gEDA on the Windows platform would be the primary responsibility of this person. This task requires a person who knows C, GTK+, UNIX, and MS
Windows programming. The Windows port will NOT move forward if this task is not filled.
Somebody who wants to create and manage releases is needed. Releases occur when the code is ready to be released, so there's no marketing pressure. This task requires gEDA building/testing familiarity as well perhaps some minor code hacking.
