Hello Herbert, Philipp,

Thank you very much for your presentation. Your backgrounds are
impressive, and the Mac port is *extremely glad* to welcome
professionals like you.

As reminder, (but you probably know everything below), the Mac port does
use several ways for communication :

1) Mailing lists :  [hidden email]
Mailing lists are extremely important, and prefer use them for new
implementation, patches to be tested, etc.

2) Mac porting site :
Shaun, Eric and other maintain that important entry point

3) IRC : server  channel : #ooo_macport  ( my nickname
is ericb2 )
+ we do weekly IRC Meetings : next is scheduled tomorrow, Friday 4th May .

See : (
old meeting logs are available)

4) wiki :

Important :  we try to document everything on Aqua pages :
The point is : describe everything to avoid to redo and redo later.

This is the way Mac port lives :-)

To know more about the exact current status for Aqua port (means
commited code, not work in progress), I'd suggest you to start a build (
see Aqua Build page ), and discuss with us on IRC to be aware of all
work in progress.

- Top 10 of issues :

+ I got other issues in my list :

@all :  please complete the list if you have other issues not listed above.

FYI, S├ębastien Plisson wrote the first part of ATSU integration.

If you have other questions feel free to ask, and be very welcome aboard !!
