Would like to contribute

DanGonz
I would first like to say that I have been very impressed with Musescore functionality and ease of use. I am a drummer and have finally found a way of notating drum parts that was easy and intuitive and didn't intimidate me with too many options.

I am also a C++ developer and would love to be able to contribute if I can in some way.
I have found a couple of minor bugs that I would be happy to try to fix.

I have a few questions:
What is the best development environment to use? I have a mac and a Ubuntu vm. I tried to use QT creator on the mac but got a compile error although it worked fine on Ubuntu.

I seemed to get a lot of crashes on the trunk version when I compiled it and the sound using the FluidR3 sound font seemed to suffer from glitches. I guess this is expected from the developer build. Is it best to fix bugs on the developer build or do you have a branch for version 1.2 where bugs for that particular version should be fixed?

Thanks

Danny

Hi Danny,

MuseScore primary development platform is Ubuntu, Kubuntu to be
specific but a build on mac, windows or linux should work the same in
the end. The best environment to use is probably Linux, but I'm less
sure if you run it in a VM.

Currently there is no more development on the 1.2 serie. All the
development is done on the SVN trunk (and hopefully soon on a git
repo). If you prefer GIT we have a mirror at
http://github.com/musescore/musescore The nightlies are also created
from the trunk. The trunk should become MuseScore 2.0 in the near
future.

As you may know the bug tracker is at
http://musescore.org/en/project/issues You can file bugs there and
assign them to you if you are working on something. When it's done,
you can attach a patch to the issue, it will be reviewed and commited.

Don't hesitate to post your questions here or to join IRC for a live
chat (#musescore on freenode.net)

If you are interested, I once questioned whether the 'Edit Drumset' interface could be redesigned (link).
