Want to help out with collaborative editing?

Start at the developers page.

You'll need to get up to speed with the LibreOffice project and our development style:

  1. Get the code; build it
  2. Join dev list, introduce yourself
  3. Do a couple of Easy Hacks to get familiar with the workflow. This is also a good way to show people that you're committed to writing code for the project :-)
  4. Finally: Ask what's on the TODO list for collaborative editing.

Code is here:
