I swear, this should be a FAQ...
You can contribute to Mono in several ways:
The better question to ask is what would you like to do?
There are lots of things you can do:
- Work on the class libraries. See
The classes listed are the classes that need work, are incomplete,
etc. Find a namespace that interests you and start implementing.
If you contribute to the class libraries, you should join
Considering your interest in databases, this might also be useful:
- Bug Fixes: See http://bugzilla.ximian.com, and look at the bugs for:
- Documentation. Lots is needed. It's in the monodoc CVS module.
See also: http://www.go-mono.com/documentation.html
However, you might want to wait on this until the documentation
editor is complete.
If you contribute to Documentation, you should join mono-docs-list:
- HOWTOs. These are in the monkeytalk CVS module, and can be seen at:
- Test Cases: Either implement more, or fix the bugs that they are
finding. NUnit is used for test cases, but some are using NUnit,
while others are using NUnit2, so I'm not sure what we should be
using for new test cases.
However, I've heard that there are lots of mono bugs found by the
current test cases, and these should be fixed.
Hope this helps.
