How to become a RHexLib developer.

This document explain what you need to do in order to get involved in RHexLib development. There are a few steps you need to complete before this can happen.

  1. Create a SourceForge user. You can do this through http://sourceforge.net/account/register.php. If you are using a local Unix account, it is probably a good idea to choose the same username (but different password) as your SourceForge username.
  2. Once you become a SourceForge user, you will have an email address username@users.sourceforge.net, an SSH (a secure version of telnet) login shell at shell.sourceforge.net and access to all the facilities of SourceForge including creating projects etc.
  3. Login to your account once to create your home directory etc. You can do this using "ssh shell.sourceforge.net", which will login to one of the SourceForge machines. Note that it might take a little bit of time before your account is activated in SourceForge, so don't panic if you get "permission denied" messages in the first hour. If you are using Windows, please take a look at the Windows CVS/SSH guide, Windows CVS/SSH Howto, and WinCVS addendum.Some of the discussion and help forums in SourceForge should also be helpful.
  4. Email your username (and who you are) to ulucs@users.sourceforge.net.

I will then go ahead and add you as a developer to the rhex project (http://rhex.sourceforge.net). Once again, note that it might take a little bit of time for your developer status to propagate to all the components of SourceForge, so you might need to wait 30 mins or so for things to work.You will then need to do a couple more things.

  1. Go to the mailing lists for the rhex project and add yourself to all the lists. This is important because that is where we will circulate all important discussions and announcements.
  2. Carefully read the installation instructions, the compilation instructions, the SimSect howto and the CVS howto in this web site to familiarize yourself with how to do development on RHexLib with SourceForge and CVS.

At this point, you should be in good shape and ready to go!
