jsXe needs developers to implement new features and fix bugs, testers for testing jsXe, translators for translating messages and the website, and web designers who are interested in updating the project's website.
Getting involved is fairly easy. There are a multitude of ways that you can become involved in the project. The easiest is probably by subscribing to the mailing lists, however there are many methods at your disposal.
Note: Contributers will be expected to give their real names.
If you are interested in working on jsXe, please subscribe and send a mail to the jsxe-devel mailing list. The developers can help get you started. Developers should know how to use SVN and have some experience with Java swing or XML.
If you are interested in testing jsXe, please subscribe and send a mail to the jsxe-devel mailing list. Testing will normally be done on SVN and beta releases. Familiarity with SVN and ant is a plus since it will be needed for testing code from the SVN repository.
If you are interested in translating for the jsXe project. Please subscribe and send a mail to the jsxe-devel mailing list.
