    Joining an open source project

    I'm a pretty intermediate c programmer, i have been programming in C constantly since more than year. When I say constantly, I mean nonstop. I've been looking to get into some open source development, but I really can't find any projects that I think I can understand. Most of the time, they're too low level (as in too close to hardware) or they are old enough that the lead developers have all left it. I am mostly interested in networks but anything interesting will do. For example, twisted (the python library), was a perfect match, but I'm looking for something that uses C.

    Thanks,
    Dhaivat

    Have you checked with a Google for "open source projects", yet? I'd try a few other search engines, as well.

    Sourceforge.net used to be a good place to look, as well.

    I believe your stated problem is common place. If the project isn't completed in a reasonable amount of time, many of the programmers get bored and/or frustrated, and move on.

    I've been checking the following websites

    gnu.org (still in progress)
    code.google.com
    sourceforge.net

    Either start your own, or pick up an abandon project like you said.

    Have you been frequently visiting SourceForge.net: Help Wanted ?
