One of the biggest challenges in an open source development project is getting the "architecture of participation" right. Like a great game, contributing should be easy to pick up but hard to master, giving people of all skills and experience an opportunity to engage. Right now we have scores of developers working on dozens of projects, but a lot of it is behind the scenes on private email lists, Skype calls and IM threads, Google Docs and 3D Robotics project trackers.  You can see the tip of the iceberg in the change logs, but that's just a hint of the activity that goes on every day.

If you'd like to get involved with the DIY Drones dev teams, here are a few places to start:

Just submitted a first cut of "Minimum ground speed" to Doug for review.  Very excited to have the opportunity to (hopefully) give back to the community in some small way.

HI all. Just joined and coming up to speed on all of the source. I want to contribute especially in the TradHeli area as I plan some changes for my own use anyway. Step one is to ensure everything makes successfully. I am a Borland guy for 20 yrs so MS Studio is a step in a new direction and I cannot seem to get APMPlanner to make without errors. At least the hunt through the source looking for a solution has been of benefit. Who do I correspond with for assistance with making Planner?

     Michael Oborne is the master of the mission planner.  Maybe he can help...
