    Hello,

    I downloaded the source code. Again. This time, despite my lack of time, I might just be able to hack a little bit here and there. The trouble is, I use a very bare-bones environment: JRE+Jikes+Emacs. Do I need anything else? Some third-party library, perhaps?

    Thanks,
    Felix

      JRE+Jikes+Emacs should be fine. However, I certainly haven't tried this combination recently as I tend to use Eclipse all the time nowadays.

      You may also want to get ant as well for the build script, and JUnit for the test cases - not strictly needed, but both very useful.

      Thanks again. It's good to hear from you. I'd like to implement a "town portal" feature, specifically. Any quirks to beware?

      Hey Felix, I hope you are using cvs ?

      I'm not using CVS yet, I've taken the stock 0.334 sources. I tought I couldn't access the project's repository unless I'm listed as a developer?

        Everyone is free to download code out of sourceforge cvs repositories. However, if you want to add your change, you need to be marked as a developer.

        The cvs repository probably has more recent code than the last release, which is why you should use that.

      I didn't know that, thanks. I'll get the files from CVS then.
