Hi Pascal,

As you have mentioned "If your patch is considered as good enough, it will be committed to the subversion repository by one of the core developers.", I'd like to know if the list of core developers & community developers available somewhere.

Hi,

there is no registration needed. All you need is to follow the advices
found here:
http://www.wireshark.org/develop.html
This page contains links to useful docs like the developer's user guide:
http://www.wireshark.org/docs/wsdg_html_chunked
Then once you want to start coding, the doc folder (located at the
root of the source code tree) contains a lot of useful stuff also.

Usually people working on a feature / bug fix submit a bug report to
https://bugs.wireshark.org/ and attach their patch for review. If your
patch is considered as good enough, it will be committed to the
subversion repository by one of the core developers.
If you do not have any specific idea on what to work on, they are
plenty of bugs waiting for a contributor :)

Best regards,
Pascal.
