I've been lurking here for a while and have decided to get involved. I just started running LinuxMCE at home recently; I want to set up an Asterisk system for my phones instead of relying on packet8, and want this server to run MythTV as well. The MythTV integration in LinuxMCE could use some work, so that's my coding interest in LinuxMCE. But I've talked with Paul about setting up a public SVN repository and otherwise making it easier for developers to get involved.
The public SVN doesn't need to be sold as an idea, some of you have already set up a repository, but I would also like to make the build scripts simpler so that you can just do a "./configure; make ; make install" on the modules, and maybe a "make cdrom" to make an install disk. I also think a mailing list rather than a forum would make sense for developers. And finally, I would like to move to trac for bug tracking, mostly because it can be integrated with svn and show exactly which issues have been fixed and in which version they were fixed. This wouldn't impact the 6 month LinuxMCE release cycle, but it would make it easier for developers like myself to get involved.
