Once you have been included in the development team you can then select an open task/bug/whatever from our developer portal. When you have selected something you would like to work on you will need to assign yourself to that item. If you do not have access yet one of the development leaders can do that for you.

Once you have code that is ready to commit to SVN please contact one of the development leaders. We will evaluate your code and commit it.  After this you will be granted commit rights to the SVN directly. I am sure all of you can understand the need for us to have a look at your first commit offer.

An important goal is to go Joomla native. So try to use the Joomla native methods as best as possible. Use j! debugger, language, db and so on. The files in the "classes" and "html" folders are not longer used. The new code mustn't contain any "ps_*" classes.

When you are registered to redmine, you maybe kicked if you are not active for longer time than 3 months. Of course you can get easily listed again, we just need a better overview of the currenct active people.
