What is a good place to look for volunteers who would like to modify
Windows source code for an open source software. We have a programme that changes wallpapers on your desktop but it is only available for Windows.

As a FreeBSD fan, I'd love to see it in ports. Can anyone recommend
forums where to look for people interested in making such programme available for UNIX desktops?

Many thanks!

It isn't as easy as a little porting. Depending on the window manager in X there may already be a wallpaper changer. I would check the main site for the Window Manager you use first before you try to reinvent this wheel.

Because the changing of wallpaper is VERY window manager centric, I don't think it would be easy to have one utility that would work with all the WM's. Unlike in MS Windows where there is a single window manager and API.
