I have requested creation of a recruitment mailing list. Once created it will be a home for
new people to work together on getting started. Meanwhile, dev@ is a good place.

it’s worth it, maybe I could install a Linux partition on one of those.  I use Visual Studio,
now 2015 edition, and I’ve used Xcode with Obj-C and Swift a bit, but if there’s a free/ish
version of another IDE you recommend, I can install that.

There is an urgent need for building and testing on Mac. It is our second most popular user
platform, after Windows.

they’ll provide (very brief) go-here help / a little extra review for C++, that would be
great.  I always work TDD or test-bound as I call it ( == test before any first use ), but
I could miss things.
