What is Chatcoin?
Chatcoin is cryptocurrency to offer a true decentralized chat program that won't rely on a central server to deliver messages from the sender to their recipients and lets you communicate freely with anyone in the world without censorship. It also has a decentralized block reward voting, fast transactions, new efficient algorithm / GPU miner (based on NIST5: BLAKE - Grøstl - JH - Keccak - Skein).
For more information, as well as an immediately useable, binary version of the Chatcoin client sofware, see

Developers work in their own trees, then submit pull requests when they think their feature or bug fix is ready.
If it is a simple/trivial/non-controversial change, then one of the Chatcoin development team members simply pulls it.
If it is a more complicated or potentially controversial change, then the patch submitter will be asked to start a discussion (if they haven't already) on the mailing list.
The patch will be accepted if there is broad consensus that it is a good thing.
Developers should expect to rework and resubmit patches if the code doesn't
match the project's coding conventions (see
doc/coding.txt) or are
master branch is regularly built and tested, but is not guaranteed to be
completely stable. Tags are created
regularly to indicate new official, stable release versions of Chatcoin.
Testing and code review is the bottleneck for development; we get more pull requests than we can review and test. Please be patient and help out, and remember this is a security-critical project where any mistake might cost people lots of money.
Developers are strongly encouraged to write unit tests for new code, and to submit new unit tests for old code.
Unit tests for the core code are in
src/test/. To compile and run them:
cd src; make -f makefile.unix test
Unit tests for the GUI code are in
src/qt/test/. To compile and run them:
qmake CHATCOIN_QT_TEST=1 -o Makefile.test chatcoin-qt.pro make -f Makefile.test ./chatcoin-qt_test
