Current tasks in progress:

RustedSoul: X-Net text entries to XML file format. No coding, just text copy/paste aspect.

(once converted into XML, we can follow up with some proofing for spelling and grammar. If done in parallel, we might mix up versions IMO. Once proofed, we can hand it over for additional coding and formatting.)

I should. but as Micah has said I should only sign up for one at a time. Slap me on the mailing list copy, and I'll get to work. Do you have a preference in mind for how you want it done?

Whoohoo, something I can do!

I would like to apply for a role in the proof reading of the CTD texts, as, well, a CTD person I guess. Should keep me busy for a little while. And, yes Breunor, I will give this my full attention - I have a deadline now :D

In addition I may be able to offer some limited support for the viper video, but as I havey only used Movie Maker I cannot really guarantee anything.


Micah, this topic isn't viewable by guests is it?

In this Task Force that ends on 5th of July, the team will have to try to catch not only mispeling but find out what inconsistencies between texts arrise (and flag inconsistent texts so we can make a Task Force later to handle those).

All filled, the Viper Movie Task Force has already started the Task.

Well, we considered the music to be more or less completed for the video. The only thing (we think) it lacks is sound effects. If you feel otherwise, please feel free to make it better :)

So looking over the task forces, one place I might fit in is the
XNet-XML Conversion Task Force.

Programmer

I know c++ classes (or I did at some point), and though I have no idea what Xerces is, I could learn that.

Some other posts that interest me (but I would need to learn more programming for):

Base Module Texturing Task Force

Programmer

Don't know c#, but would be willing to learn, and:


Static Data Model Definition Task Force

Programmer


And I haven't used OGRE before (but i've heard of it :)), but this post is interesting:

Planetscape Gui Task Force

Programmer


So I guess I should probably end up in one of those first two?

Blankstar as the conversion is going very well (in RustedSoul's hands) and given the fact that you mention that you use Java, C# Base Texturing Task Force is the best bet.

If you have any question just PM me.

Thalo I added you too, somehow I missed your message. Sorry in Advance. I would suggest to start ASAP... Contact with Thejer (the other programmer) and with Drewid (Coordinator) and FabGuy (the one that is texturing the stuff).

Kamikazee as you were working with Hymie I put you as documentation guy in the Programmers Resources Task Force. Do you still want to be there? I prefer one person per task force, unless the work needed for that task force is not much. So it is up to you, as documentation people tend to depend on other members I can let you be in both.

XNet-XML Conversion Task Force

I'd like to apply to be a Converter. I'm already familiar with the general workings of XML, I'd just need filling in on what tags need to be used, and where we are using nested tags and where we are using attributes. (if at all)
EDIT: Took a look-sy around, and downloaded the current progress on this. I am okay with the XML tags used if there is room for me in the TF :)

XNet Proofreading Task Force

If this needs any additional people, I've got plenty of experience proofreading for flow problems, inconsistancies, grammar, and spelling :)
