Thanks for the interest! We are all operating this pretty much informally - pick something, stub it out, get the very basics onto the cvs and build from there. If you are actively involved in an area, send to the mailing list and tell people. It wont guarantee that someone doesnt compete - but someone wont if you are making progress. Also - ASK QUESTIONS, we are here to help. I would be really happy getting anyone started, and we dont want people stuck on things.
I have approximately ranked each of the groups of work according to my valuation of importance.
The ranking is based on pieces that need to be completed for other pieces and how quickly System.Windows.Forms will become real world useful. Don't take them completely as gospel though.
I will add this to the Wiki. Anyone feel free to add/move around.
Toolkits : adding image support including icons. Rhys is working hard on this, images in X are v. trickey !
System.Drawing.Drawing2D : Linear Gradient Brush. Neil or someone else can add this in easily once images are done. This will allow some cool drawing effects.
System.Drawing.Imaging : Images, jpg, png, gif, scaling, rotation, transforming. jpg, png, gif support is v. tricky. Rhys is working on this. We could use SWT code, move this across from Java. Something to consider. The only thing that is key for us to get going is bmp support (easiest)
