If you're totally new to the world of git and github, this change may be quite overwhelming. But don't panic, you'll get used to it in no time.
Here is a few basic tips what to do if you're here for the first time:
- Sign up for the FreeMiNT Mailing List, a follow-up of the original MiNT Mailing List; its fate has been not decided yet, for now it remains the communication platform for the FreeMiNT project (and any more or less related things, generally any Atari programming question is welcome there)
- create a github account
- go to https://github.com/freemint/freemint and press the Watch button; this way you'll get notifications about any new issue in the Issues section. You will also get notifications about new pull requests.
- most likely you will want to setup some email rules so important emails don't get lost in the sea of github notifications: https://help.github.com/articles/about-notification-emails/
- subscribe to the wiki RSS (if interested) using your favourite Atom reader: https://github.com/freemint/freemint/wiki.atom
With these being done, you're more or less set, no need to do anything else. If you would like to contribute to the project, there's a few options:
- update / expand / fix the FreeMiNT wiki (no restrictions there, all you need is a github account)
- update / expand / fix / cleanup the documentation
- help with the project website (source: https://github.com/freemint/freemint.github.io)
- fix a bug or implement new feature in the code (kernel, XaAES, tools)
- take a look into Issues
