Willing developers.

P.S. Until then you can use Assembly 2.

I have a question of my own for you, kcleung:

I am fluent in C++, and also have a working knowledge of Python. Hopefully I can start contributing into this project :)

That was almost a year ago.

When are your contributions coming?

Hey NormandC!

Sorry for the delay. I have just finished my studies, and finally now have time to look at the project, and this is what I am doing right now.

I have gone through recent commit logs and issue tracker related to partdesign. I am glad that someone has fixed the bug that ickby initially asked me to do (#2501 the mirror feature).

Out of the current PartDesign issues in:

http://freecadweb.org/tracker/my_view_page.php

which of those you think will be a blocker for a future Assembly implementation, and which of those you would recommend me to take as my first bug to fix?

Thanks for your encouragement NormandC!

I think you're putting the cart before the horse. In my opinion, the priority here is to stabilize PartDesign first and make it more usable, because that's what preventing the 0.17 release.

You could look at the bug issues listed for PartDesign in the roadmap page. https://freecadweb.org/tracker/roadmap_page.php

There may even be more undocumented bugs that thorough testing of PartDesign will reveal.
