I've been a enthusiast Python programmer for 3 years now, and I've hailed
Cython project with great interest. Now, I'm willing to contribute. I've would
say I'm an quite an expert Python programmer and I've some-year-long
experience with C, modern C++ and its cousin Java. Sidenote, I'm a student at
Politecnico di Milano, Italy.
Everything started with trying to speed up a Mandelbrot generator, which
heavily relies on complex numbers. Eventually I've found in "Mini Projects (or
something similar)" wiki that C99 `complex' is still to be implemented. So, I
decide to make a step further and try to hop into development.
I've would be grateful if a core developer could point me in the right
direction concerning coding style, repositories, deadlines (I'm still a
student, so I may have 'offline' days this winter) and other issues. I may
start with something easy (`complex' implementation, or command line API
restructuration), and I'd like someone from the team to discuss what I'll be
implementing (ok, just for the first days), just to see if "I'm doing it
right" (TM) and, mostly, if I'm the right man or I'm just making you loose
You can see an example of what I did in the past here:

I really appreciate your work :)
