Looking for a Few Good C++ Coders

A Sun developer has offered to work with one or two developers on prototyping for the OpenOffice Bibliographic Project. This help will mostly be in the form of technical advice and such, but this is a great offer as OOo is known for being rather big and complex for newcomers to get into.

The problem: we need someone with strong C++ skills, which seem to be rather hard to find, at least in comparison to Python or Java. If you’re interested in contributing, please join the project and post a note to the dev list. Likewise, if you know someone who might have the skill and interest, point ‘em our way. It could be a great student project, in fact.

The plans are available at http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/User_talk:Dnw. We have placed our plans on the wiki site as we hope developers will contribute by adding information to assist others and to add detail to the plans. [...]
