Reply To: The case for reviving Firefly



I use firefly on my NSLU2 – it’s great, as it does exactly what I need, works just fine and has very small footprint. I’d like to help move things forward. I’ve been involved in a few open source projects in the past, so I thought I’d reply here and add my 2 cents.

It looks like a few people would like to help, but it’s not very clear where to start! No-one really knows the code at the moment, and it’s hard to get anyone to dedicate time to it – I guess because it’s impossible to work out what you’re letting yourself in for!!

I’m going to put my neck on the line and start a few new threads up, to try and move the discussion forward. Plus, there are a few small steps we can take to get things moving that shouldn’t require too much time from anyone who would like to help.

A couple of questions:

– where is the definitive source code repository? (I’ve seen a trac one and a sourceforge one)
– is there any documentation anywhere?
