Hi all,

Of course we are always looking for new developers, but atm I'm 
personally interested in an extra OS X developer. Currently I'm the 
only 'active'/'full time' os x developer. I'm somewhat busy of late 
with some other activities, which will keep me busy for the rest of the 
year as well.
Having the OS X GUI working/up to date for each release is kinda taking 
most of the time I have for VLC, and of late i like working on VLC at a 
lower level too. Unfortunately, there are like a zillion things on my 
wishlist for OSX which i simply never seem to get around to.

I'm gonna name some things and if you have ANY of these capabilities 
and would like to participate in the development of a cool video player 
that is being downloaded by tens of thousands of users, then that would 
be great.
It would speed up the development of VLC OS X, and for me personally 
it's cool to be actively working on something with someone else. helps 
to keep you motivated :)

- knowledge of objective c
- knowledge of cocoa
- you support opensource
- knowledge of c (c++)
- you have worked on OSX applications before.
- thorough knowledge of coreaudio API (anyone please, we could really 
use some more help on this area)
- thorough knowledge of QuickTime or QuickDraw API (wouldn't hurt, 
though this part of VLC is pretty static.)

It would probably take you some time to get up to speed with VLC's 
structure, but when I started, VLC was only the third Cocoa application 
i had worked on, and I had very little real programming experience. 
Don't be afraid, you'll get the hang of it.
