This page lists resources that developers use on a regular basis. One goal of the page is to help those beginning to track the project know what they may be interested in looking at.
- The Installation Guide describes how to build and install MIT Kerberos.
- The 1.6 documentation site contains administrator and user documentation; while not directly targeted at developers, this documentation helps understand the product.
- Unfortunately there is no stable web pointer to the current version of MIT Kerberos documentation; as such the above links will eventually point to outdated documentation.
- The Glossary is a quick index of acronyms and terms related to Kerberos, which you may come across while reading the code.
Much of the discussion of new proposals, discussion of what direction to take the product and answering of questions takes place on mailing lists.
- firstname.lastname@example.org is the primary list for developers of MIT Kerberos.
- email@example.com serves a similar purpose for Kerberos for Windows.
- firstname.lastname@example.org receives all Subversion commit messages and allows developers to track all changes made to MIT Kerberos.
- email@example.com is notified when a ticket is created or updated. This list helps track bugs and feature requests.
- firstname.lastname@example.org is a private list for Krbcore; send mail to this list if you need to contact the core team.
- email@example.com is the point of contact for security problems with MIT Kerberos.
The MIT Kerberos sources are in a Subversion repository.
- http://anonsvn.mit.edu/svn/krb5 provides web access to the entire repository.
- http://anonsvn.mit.edu/svn/krb5/trunk provides access to the current development version of MIT Kerberos.
- svn://anonsvn.mit.edu/svn/krb5 provides read-only Subversion access to the repository.
- Opengrok provides an interface that allows you to search for the definition or usage of a specific function.
- Committers have access to a URI that allows them to commit changes to the repository.
- http://krbdev.mit.edu/rt/ is the interface to the bug tracking server.
- Log in with user name guest and password guest.
doc/procedures.txt(raw | annotated | history) for some information on bug states.
The core team and some fairly active developers use a jabber room for instant message chat. The goal is to have kerberos developers around the world available to answers each others' questions and to engage in real-time design discussions. If you are a reasonably active developer and wish to join this chat, contact a core team member for details.
