--- TODO LIST ---

* DotGNU Developer


At the moment there are a number of good IDE's, but most of them focus on C 
and C++ and not C#. But a good IDE is very important to attract large numbers 
of developers. The idea is to develop a number of independent programming 
tools and then to create a GUI to work with them. If possible the IDE should 
have support for visualizing the code structure (creating class trees), 
graphical debugging, customizable code highlighting and scripting (these last 
two would make it possible to use the IDE for other languages things than 
C#). The mails send about this subject can be found in the archives (threads: 
'Developer wishlist' and 'Webservice Goals').


Since there are a number of programs involved the needed skills vary from 
basic C# skills for easy little tools to good C# skills for the hard stuff.

* DotGNU Math library


A good high level math library would be nice.

Skills required:

Basic C# skills.
Good math skills.

* DotGNU Games


At the moment DotGNU has some games but they are mainly small 
prove-of-concepts (Curse of Frogger in pnetcurses). It would be nice to have 
a collection of small games like minesweeper and pong. Though such programs 
aren't very important it's a good way to learn how to write DotGNU programs.

Skills needed:

Very basic C# programming skills.

* DotGNU Communication


Various internet protocols will be supported in the DotGNU libraries but that
doesn't help the end user very much, so we need things as graphical mailers,
newsgroup readers and IM programs.


Basic C# programming skills.

* DotGNU Advocacy


MS .NET is getting a lot of attention and most of it's users don't know there 
is an alternative, you can help us change that. For example by writing an 
article for one of the many slashdot like sites on the net or by writing a 
letter to a computer magazine explaining the dangers of .NET (and that there 
is an alternative) when .NET is being talked about too positively. We need to 
get people aware that .NET is not the ultimate solution MS promises (for 
example, MS marketing doesn't mention that you need to create a lot of code 
to get input from the sales unit changing things in the manufacturing unit).

Skills required:

Basic writing skills.
