Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

The Developer Portal

This portal is for developers contributing to FlightGear. If you want to help with FlightGears development, it's a good idea to subscribe yourself to the FlightGear devel mailing list. The list archive is also available and should be searched before posting the same question.

Please choose a sub-portal:

The FlightGear project is looking for organizations/individuals who would be willing to help sponsor a fulltime project coordinator/manager to help oversee the overall development process If you are interested in helping or have anything else to contribute to this issue, please subscribe to the the FlightGear Devel mailing list to discuss details. (Note that the FlightGear project can apply for free funding/sponsoring with nlnet-applications are to be sent here-you can help prepare a template for applying: Funding Application)

RFC Topics

Clarification: In its current form, the RFC section is exclusively based on and covered by previous mailing list and forum discussions (as well as various wiki entries), as such it is not supposed to reflect work in progress (RFC="Request For Comments" and not WIP), but is rather to be seen as an attempt to provide comprehensive analyses and summaries of key issues identified in various FlightGear related discussions and feature requests (which are to be linked to in the corresponding resource sections, if that didn't yet take place, it's because of most of these RFCs being indeed WIP).

Thus, RFC entries are not meant to imply anyone "working" on any of these issues, in fact only because an RFC entry is listed here doesn't necessarily mean that work on that particular issue is prioritized or generally endorsed by the FlightGear community. These RFC documents are however intended to hopefully help increase and maintain awareness of long-standing issues and challenges affecting FlightGear's evolution and overall development progress in order to solicit community feedback about possible approaches to address these in an efficient and structured fashion. Anybody is welcome to comment on, help refine and develop new strategies to tackle the challenges presented in these and future RFCs.
