Starter work?

craigfisher
This post was updated on .
I've set up a development environment and read up on Qt.  Now I'm trying to understand the codebase, and given its size, I feel the best way would be to have a specific issue to hunt down.  

I'm a beginner trying to understand the codebase, but given its size, I feel my best route would be to have a specific issue to hunt down.  What would be a good "starting bug" or project?  I've skimmed through the issue tracker, but I can't quite weigh the depth of the different issues or which ones would be instructive.  Any suggestion are greatly appreciated.

Along those lines - I have some time (mostly on the weekends) available to bugfix as well, so I'd take a "starter bug" or two as well, particularly if they're on the list of 2.0 must-fix bugs.

Thanks,

Geoff

Great to have you guys aboard!

There are two lists I know of that you might find interesting. These
lists are mostly about priority - identifying the most *important*
issues to address.  And a lot of them will probably turn out to be
particularly messy, or they'd have been fixed by now.  But still, there
are doubtless some good candidates to be found here.

First, here is lasconic's list:

http://musescore.org/en/project/issues/musescore?tag=2.0

and here is mine:

http://musescore.org/en/issue-hit-list-marc-sabatella

Looking over the lists, not much jumps out as all that easy for someone
not already familiar with the code.  But I'd think of your first bug fix
as an investment.  You'll probably spend way longer on it than what it
might take someone else, but you'll have learned something about that
part of the code, and the next bug in the same area will go easier,
etc.  So maybe choose based on what particular area of the code
interests you the most.

Marc

Welcome guys!

Moonlake, I just missed you on IRC, you are welcome to come back when
you want. Except Marc, most of the active developers are in western
europe.

Not much to add on what Marc just said. The best bug to start with is
the one that you are personally interested to kill because you'll
probably spend a lot of time fixing it. If you explain here or on IRC
what you use MuseScore for, I could give you some ideas about which
bugs to hunt.
