Hi there, fellow Java-haters ;)
I'd like to offer my help with the project. I'm a C+ programmer (C+ = C with just enough C++ to not compile in C ;) specializing in Windows development, raw WinAPI etc.

However, I'm too much of a moron to actually learn to use Git (there's no simple "how to use" book, no simple GUI windows app...) and I severely dislike other-than-mine code style.

If you still think you could use my help, count me in :)

For starters, I was thinking of something along the lines of a windows GUI for the server, showing some stats in a window, like the original server does. This could be implemented as a plugin, so not much of me intervening in the intestines of MineServer codebase. I could then send the sources to someone in charge, if appropriate.

At least that could lead to the plugin API being ironed out a bit.

From the Github help pages:

So ... what's stopping you again? ;]

If you are familiar with SVN (especially when it comes to GUIs) you might want to have a look at TortoiseGIT: http://code.google.com/p/tortoisegit/

It's much like TortoiseSVN, in case you've ever used that one.

You can also fork your own mineserver on github, then ask for a pull request when you've "finished" what you wanted to change.

That's exatly the point I hate about git, and I believe it is the killer of open-source projects: forking. "You don't like it? Fork it" It means that there are thousands of forks of good ideas and none of the forks really work.

Last time I tried TortoiseGit (and even before that) it didn't work at all. And their broken-English error messages were too cryptic even for me to guess their meaning.

msysGit seems to have done at least something, now I have the source, but working with it will require a lot of learning, still.

Thanks, that's what I was looking for all that time and couldn't find. I guess I could give it a  hack and a whack now Wink

Well I'd like to say that my fork is the only one people should use Grin I'm constantly checking other forks for code I can merge..=)

(Doesn't tortoisegit require msysgit..?)
