Hi Avneet,

the R2007 decoding works for some simple files but there are some things that need to be done:

- The way the color information is read
- changing all native character strings to unicode (unsigned short) and including a library that does the string conversion
- implement checksum calculating/checking (R2004/R2007)
- Check if decoding of all known entities/objects works correctly
- implement RS error correction (include the library that is mentioned in the spec)
- ...

To get your hands dirty you can start with the color decoding. I once figured out how it works and can tell you in prose.

This is the "community bonding" phase.

You are not expected do start coding your project proposals right now,
but you can if you are comfortable with that.
First, regretting for late reply.
I am doing work on GSOC according to milestones.
Review of Automake, Autoconf, TexInfo and GNU standards are done.

Exploring the source code in depth and found one of the bug that I
have reported.
To get push acces to git repository, submiited patches. You can check:

These patches are made using git, so that we can merge easily to repository.
Have experienced with git. It is good to commit on separate branch

Currently, I am giving my all time to ODA specifications for R2004 version.

@ Till Heuschmann

You have dirty your hands with R2007 version.
Last change in Feb, 2012.
So which part of file structure is left for decoding this version?
