full developer access to build scripts / build farms? who has that?
the only build farm I know of is in DanielK's control, no one else has access to that..
I think that's a misnomer, the only thing I personally have access to is the forums.. so that I could implement the Chat java app.
Any further knowledge is from trial and error.. and of course, IRC..
There's LOTS you can learn there.. at any one time, either DanielK, hari, TSCHAK, or myself are there. Often, 3 of us are in there at the same time..
Last night, I even did a step by step, blow by blow walkthrough on how to hack IR. (looking for possible discrete codes)
Nobody gave me a 'blue' book, I had to search for it.
building from source, while it's getting better, is still no where near perfect.
There's lots of libs that keep getting updated, etc, etc, I still don't have the whole thing compiling..
But I'm learning as we go... a good rule of thumb I keep is: when you don't know what direction to go, check in IRC, most of the time, SOMEONE has been there.
