Depends on whether you plan to participate in its development. That includes participation via documentation, testing, etc, not just code.

Well, if it is allowed, I'd certainly be willing to.

As I mentioned in my first post in the Development room, coding is not exactly my strong point, though I have had to make my way through it -it's not that coding doesn't interest me-.

But, as also mentioned, I do have some time for reading and testing, for example. Also open to other types of participation if needed.

If I may mention it, my primary interests would be the XMPP server and the upcoming Webcit-ng interface; improving them -and speeding their development if possible-. But if you say "right now we need to fix this and that first" I adapt as well.

I know this is the 2nd time I hint at all of this, and of course don't intend to annoy people with the same arguments neither. It's just that, just saying "I wanna help, tell me where to" sounded kinda rude and even a bit retarded. And with the lack of feedback in the Development room I thought "then I should at least begin somewhere", which was the XMPP server (currently learning how to use gdb).

But, if you could mention where or how some participation is needed, it would be very helpful.

If I'm missing something about how things work here, please tell.

Thanks in advance.

Helping debug a protocol is *absolutely* good in the development room, even if you don't write a single line of code. It's actually the hard part and is super welcome.

The reason the development room isn't public is because people were using it for random feature requests and other way-off-topic things. The only time a feature request would be welcome there would be "I want to implement XYZ; can you tell me which API's I should use, and are you willing to accept such an addition to the project mainline".
