Hi Albert, you're very welcome !
I guess contributing automated tests might be an appropriate contribution
from you ?

If you agree you can start taking a look at the testsuite/misc-ming.all
and testsuite/actionscript.all testsuites.
The former uses mostly the Ming C interface (but sometimes also just makeswf)
for testing handling of specific tags/features; here there's support
for adding custom movie *runners* which are C++ based host applications
doing callbacks into the gnash core api to test interaction and rendering
related things.
The latter is just for actionscript, compiling each source unit in
versions from 5 to 8.

In both cases we use Dejagnu-like facilities to make runnign tests easier.

The wiki ( should contain more, and I'll be happy to
expand where needed. The gnash manual should also contain info about how
to write testcases.

Consider joining #gnash on freenode for more info (like newest and currently
preferred way of writing tests).
