 ====About==== ====About====
 +Proton SDK (aka p+) is a component based C++ framework that is optimized for GL/GLES based mobile cross-platform game development.
 +
 +It's designed for advanced C++ programmers,​ if you're new to C++ or programming,​ this probably isn't the SDK for you!
 +
 +Warning: Currently, things are designed around the presumption that you want to work from Visual C++ on Windows as your "​main"​ development platform. Most scripts are .bat files. There is no deal-breaking reason why you can't use another platform as your "​main"​ platform, but you'll have to do more work to get it going. ​ If you do that, you should tell email Seth and contribute any tips/​scripts/​changes you've made.

 +====Contributing Code====
 +
 +Do you want to be a part of the magic and contribute your brainpower to the project? ​ Here's how!
 +
 +  * Created patches using svn difs.  On Windows with [[http://​tortoisesvn.net|TortoiseSVN]] installed, just right click the Proton root folder and choose Create Patch. ​ On linux from the command line it would be: svn diff > mypatch.diff from the root folder.
 +  * Post the patches in the [[http://​www.rtsoft.com/​forums/​forumdisplay.php?​26-Proton-SDK-Area|forums]],​ if they don't totally break everything Seth will commit them
 +  * After you've "​proven yourself"​ with a few patches, Seth will be happy to give you full write access to the svn if you want it
 +  * All submitted code must be fully compatible with the Proton license (unless it's like a third party library with its own license, like zlib)
 +
 +Coding rules:
 +
 +  * Try to follow the existing code style of the file
 +  * Do not commit breaking changes without talking to Seth first
 +  * Do not change default behavior of any component/​class without to Seth first
 +  * Feel free to add your name in the credits of the .h file of any class/file you considerably modify/add to
 +  * Feel free to add comments like "Added this to fix crash on OS X -JoeCoder"​ in the code, especially if it's not clear why you added something
 +  * If you want to add an additional build system like Premake, it's cool as long as it doesn'​t break any existing build stuff
 +
 +====Contributing Documentation====
 +
 +This is a wiki, <​del>​feel free</​del>​ .. well, we had a bit of a spam problem and have disabled new wiki sign ups.  If you'd like access, email seth with a logon and password and he'll set it up for ya.
 +
 +====Contributing Art & Music====
 +
 +Seth sucks at art and would love to have better looking examples, logos, music, etc.  Drop him a line if you can help!
 +
 +====Contributing Cash====
 +
 +Really? ​ Well, let Seth know someone would actually do this and he'll set up a paypal link or something.
 +
 +====Getting a hold of Seth====
 +Want to chat with Seth about something and email won't do? He hangs out in IRC in #clanlib on irc.freenode.net
