There is a page exactly for this:

It was created two weeks ago but it is empty right now.
Be free to use it for anything related to improving Quickbook.

There are this two pages too:

This three pages are grouped under "Documentation Tools" section on IBD wiki:

I think that the best way to get people involved is to break the
things we have to do for Quickbook into subprojects and add stubs in
that page, including a help request.

We can organize this effort based on the TODO list.

It was very exciting to read your posts during the day Joel, thanks a
lot for this movie like action :)

While we are at this pace, I take the opportunity to remind you a
feature request (from this thread: ):

Can templates notation be extended to use optional named
parameters (onp). I am thinking in:

Template definition:

[template tname [a b c]
    [onp_1 default_1]
    [onp_2 default_2]

This is the template body...
use unamed forced parameters: [a]
use onp parameters: [onp_1] (This prints the value or the default)
[onp_1? if was used do this : if not do this ]


IMO this is a good extension and is backward compatible with the
current implementation.


Count with us. We love Quickbook :)

I will give a three hours course about Quickbook in my university (
UBA - Argentina ) in Tuesday. I expect more than 25 developers to
assist, the quickbook community will start to grow :)

King regards
