Re: new ideas for how to contribute to PSPP

As a new user of PSPP I was interested in contributing. I have a lot of experience in, but none in C++ or in the kind of joint project that PSPP involves. I couldn't really figure out how the code all fit together. For instance, if I wanted to write some GUI where would I begin? How exactly are the .q files turned into the .c files and then compiled on the fly? What is a .texi file? What is a .mk file? etc. etc. Probably a half hour on the phone with a developer would get me to where I need to be, but without that or some documentation that I couldn't find, I couldn't really make any progress -- well probably I could, but the time involved getting started seemed enormous.
