I would like to contribute as a developer to the Clam-AV project

Hi,

I am interested in contributing as a developer to the clam-av project.

Some background about me: I have over 14 years of professional (industry)
kernel development experience in Unix like operating systems including
Solaris and FreeBSD. I was a member of the Solaris kernel team at Sun for
over 12 years. I have a lot of experience debugging multi-threaded kernel
code with access only to assembly code. I have very good knowledge of Unix
kernel internals, C and assembly and very strong Unix user-level programming
as well, including Posix threads, POSIX API, generic UNIX API. I have
developed kernel drivers on both Solaris and FreeBSD, system libraries and
utilities on Solaris.

I am willing to work hard and start at the bottom (I.e. contributing bug
fixes etc.) I am willing to work outside my area of prior experience (for
example Windows or Mac development)

Could you please let me know how I can go about becoming a contributor.

Thanks,
Vikram

As you have just suggested, the common way to becoming a contributor
to Free software projects is to contribute!

If you annoy the developers with too many good patches they may well
punish you by recognising you as a developer as well.

Hi Vikram,

thank you for your interest in contributing to ClamAV.

We have a bunch of possible improvements listed here:

http://wiki.clamav.net/bin/view/Main/GoogleSummerOfCode2012

For example the flash (ActionScript 3) disassembly is something that
would be very useful for our signature writers.

Please let me know if you're interested in working on any of those ideas.

Thanks again,

Hi Tomasz,

I would be very happy to work on the Flash disassembler. I will get to
work on it immediately.

Thanks for the opportunity,
Vikram
