This page is intended to be the center of the developer community, i.e. people working with direct Git access. The final code documentation should be written by doxygen into Git in docsrc/ directory, but intermediate doc are welcomed here to be worked on.


Resources for developers

These are wiki resources useful for developer:

Compilation and Releases

Packaging

Coding info

Algorithm Descriptions


Of course, Resources for contributors, Github as well as IRC are also very useful for developers.

Work in Progress

These sections are still being worked on. While you're welcome to comment on them, you shouldn't spend all day nitpicking on them, as they might be changed completely or removed before you're finished.

Request for comments

These files have been written up fully, but need to be peer-reviewed. Please read through these pages, edit and comment on them.
