Contributing to MPTK is easy, you don't need to be a programmer. Anyone who is interested can help out.

FAQ overview

How to join the development team ?

If you are a developer (or want to learn) and/or have some experience with libraries (or want to learn), we'd love to have you join the programming effort. In any event, if you'd like to participate in improving MPTK, please join the MPTK-devel mailing list. You can sign up at our MPTK Mailing Lists page.

How can i help with documentation ?

We need more, and better documentation for library decision makers, programmers and developers and librarians. If you've figured out how to do something with MPTK, or have just "learnt" it yourself, please consider writing a short piece about it and contributing it to the documentation section under MPTK gforge website.
