But there needs to be more information.... so:


 - knowledge of dialog programs (yad/zenity/dialog/etc) is helpful

 - understanding of chroot environments is needed for work on ISOmaker

 - understanding gettext in scripts would be very beneficial


 - fltk is the GUI toolkit used, familiarity with the API will help
(though it is very straight forward)

 - pugixml library is used to create menus, and handle all JWM
configuration changes.

 - make or cmake knowledge is helpful
