There are many ways for anyone to help develop Project WOnder. It would be helpful to become familiar with the information in Creating and Submitting an Acceptable Patch. For more minute detail, you can keep up with the committers's progress moment by moment by subscribing to the Commit History RSS feed on GitHub.

Project WOnder is a large set of frameworks and example applications and utility applications. Project WOnder can be used with different versions of WebObjects. (What versions of WOnder are compatible with what versions of WebObjects?) Developers may be using different tool sets to edit their projects, including eclipse and Xcode. Contributors should keep all of this in mind as they make changes.

There are dependencies between the frameworks that make up Project WOnder that must be kept in mind while changes are being made.
