You are very welcome.

Not a problem.

1) We need documentation. Basically, three documents are needed:
a) User Manual
This should cover installation of server and client,
configuring and running the client, and how to use the client
to solve tasks. It cold be divided into two main areas: end
user manual and on-site administrator's manual.
This is intended to be an online help to the user. A starting
point for this (already integrated into the default client) is
It might also be helpful to work with Steven Duffy on certain
installation issues and with David Guest on Windows problems
(LoadAllImageHandlers() ... sorry, David, I haven't had the
time yet to look into this).
Some information on this resides on http://gnumed.org run by
b) Analysis Document
This should cover design principles and user visions. User
visions are mainly "what doctors want GNUmed to do how". What
is called a "story" in eXtreme Programming. A Scenario.
c) Developers Guide
Everything a potential new developer needs to know:
Where to find resources, how to access our CVS, whom to talk
to about what, style guides, directories, conventions, design
decisions, what to read, what to install, how to set it up
for development, a few good pointers for Python, wxPython,
A good partner here is probably Richard Terry, although any
of the active developers can be of help.
2) If you have access to several Linux distributions, several
versions of Windows and a Mac (we are aiming for BSD-based
Mac's only, or are we ?) you could become a build manager.
Basically this means monitoring the cvs for changes and
making sure they work across all platforms. Parts of this
can easily be automated such as downloading from cvs,
alerting yourself if changes occurred and reporting to the
mailing list based on a mail template.
3) Localisation. You could embark on the task to find out what
legal, technical, and functional requirements need to be met
for GNUmed to work and work well in your country.
The people I mentioned can be found on the mailing list.
Pick what you like :-)
