Hi Karl,

I too will like to contribute, as I have said earlier. Is it possible to formalize some plan for it ?

With Regards,

Hi Karl,

I'm starting receiving glas e-mails! I'm a Brazilian C++ programmer  and I
work with C++ since 1997.
I'd like to help, but to do that, I need some kind of planing! What can I do
to help? There is a TODO list somewhere?

Hi Karl,

I've been following the glas list (lurking).  I'd like to contribute
but have to admit I'm a little intimidated.  My C++ skills are OK (have
been using it on/off since the mid-90's) but cannot claim real
familiarity/comfort with template meta-programming in general or the
Boost MPL (and this seems to be a pre-requisite for GLAS).

Can you or someone else please recommend some good background material
and/or "warm-up exercises" for glas beginners?

Ed

ps - I have a copy of Barton & Nackman and will order Abrahams &
     Gurtovoy or other titles if its generally viewed as a good
     idea...

Maybe an even better idea would be to look into 'concepts'. There is a
lot of discussion on this in the comp.std.c++ and
comp.lang.c++.moderated newsgroups (as they will be integrated in future
standards) and they are already integrated in concept-g++ of Doug
Gregor. On his website you can also find links to articles on concepts.
