You're already testing liquidsoap, but we'd be happy to integrate you
in the development team so you could directly contribute bug fixes, or
perhaps more in the future as you learn OCaml and become familiar with
our code. All you need to do is create a sourceforge account and give
me your username, then I'll give you commit access on our SVN.
Concerning bug reports, it's on the trac at http://savonet.rastageeks.org.
You need to register a new account before using our trac.

I am happy to welcome a new developer, Romeo. Romeo has been using
liquidsoap a lot recently, giving lots of feedback, and has shown that
he could deal with issues by himself, digging in our code even though
he doesn't know much of OCaml yet.
Romeo, you know have SVN access. We easily give commit access to our
SVN repository for two reasons: we wouldn't want to break the
motivation of new contributors, and we can remove developers as easily
as we add them.
I encourage you to discuss code changes with us, on this list or IRC,
especially for your first commits. Unfortunately, there is not much
written on our code architecture (and coding style ). But you will
quickly realize that liquidsoap's code is organized in a modular way,
with more or less sensitive zones, and different people looking over
each zone. Everybody is welcome to commit fixes everywhere, but one
should make sure to not break design choices. I'm sure you will
quickly learn to know our code, and develop your own area of expertise.

Just our trusty editor. Mostly vim, or any editor that can automatically
indent ocaml, such as emacs.
Welcome again, and have fun!
