    Getting invovled with an open source project

    Hi,

    I'm looking to get involved with an open source C++ (or possibly C) project, where would be a good place to start?

    Thanks

    SourceForge, I guess, but you'd have to be careful over there.

    Look for something not too big that interests you. Download the code, look at bug reports, try to reproduce and fix the bugs.
