Subject Re: You do not give enough info for to join the community and help
Date Thu, 19 Apr 2012 12:22:29 GMT
It is a bit tricky right now.  What is not obvious is that there is a
README.txt in the root of the source code and this the starting point for
getting the source code to compile.  The instructions are complete, but a
bit terse, which is something that is being worked on.  Another source of
information is the Adobe website which does have some documentation on the
structure and content of the source code.

I agree with your suggestion on improving the wiki and one thing you can
do to help is to keep a journal of your findings so others can learn from
your experience.

Please watch the mailing lists for announcements on improvements to the
"getting started" section and happy trailblazing!
