team members may correct me if i'm wrong, but i think that the spelling
plugin should be something that somebody with medium programming
knowledges could implement.
without having had a look at the current plugin, you will need:
- know how to read existing code (most of the time you can
copy paste existing code to get things done)
- know what a pointer is and how to manage it (most of the time you can
get hints on how to use them by looking at existing code).
- know how higher level languages (java, python, php,...) work in
order to grasp how to use the feature offered by Qt (vectors,
- dedication and time.
i'm writing right now my first plugin and i can help you getting
started with it... it's not that hard...
