Hi Phil,

There certainly is a steep learning curve to FOP development but I would encourage you to persevere as its very cool :). A good way to learn the code is to start by looking at our bug list (http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/bugs.html) or maybe contributing in a peripheral area of FOP such as improving programmatic font configuration, this would certainly be appreciated by many users and wouldn't be a difficult task.

If you want to work on an fo:float implementation, just ask questions on the mailing lists and I'm sure people will chime in and try to help you. You may also get some ideas from from https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=39777.

Best of luck,

Thanks Adrian,

I have expressed interest in helping, but found that is very involved. I
wished I could take training with one of the trunk developers...
