mrchocky "What we lack is developers and motivation for the developers who are still here"

If true why not publish a guide to producing an executable

1) Where to get a Risc OS version of CVS client 2) Where to get and how to install GCCSDK and UPP 3) Where to get and how to install CHOX11 ( Or what ever its called ) 4) How to get source tree from CVS for GIMP say 5) What to change in Makefile to setup Libraries and external variables etc 6) type make 7) What to look for in compiler errors 8) What to look for in linker errors 9) What needs including in !run file

I am sure that if people could at least get to produce an executable they could run, even if it crashes. It might start them on the road to porting. I fully agree there is lack of experienced developers around. But without some guide people face a very large learning curve just to get started and I think that puts off a lot of less experienced people
