[Grok-dev] Getting started with developing Grok

Thank a lot :) I'll get some reading done tonight.

I am familiar with SVN. And enough to know I prefer git... Don't hate me. 
Unfortunately, I am unversed in git-svn, so at this stage I don't know 
if I can commit to anything other than trunk. If I need to do anything 
else, I'll get a raw SVN checkout of the relevant branch and use that 
until I work out git-svn (on a local SVN test repo, not svn.zope.org. 
Just in case I break something).

Thanks again,

Okay - cool. If I were to "understand grok", I would:

 * First understand martian: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/martian (I
wouldn't bother looking at the code, unless you REALLY have to)
 * Next understand Grok configuration:
 * Make sure you understand the concept of adapters

Brandon Rhodes did some great work with the doc-strings across Grok,
so be sure to read those too.

The test work involves a package called manuel.fakemodule, so you
could also take a look at:

 * http://packages.python.org/manuel/
 * http://pypi.python.org/pypi/manuelpi.fakemodule

Additionally, I assume you're familiar with SVN?

That should keep you busy until I complete the tutorial. :-)
