      OpenGL code

      My OpenGL knowledge is very basic and outdated. The code works somewhat, but is slow, missing features and structural naive.

      Ideally, someone with strong up-to-date OpenGL knowledge would rip the current code out and write a proper OpenGL engine.

      • Examples:

        I don't know how to get started with internationalizing my app.

        Bug 392 about printing was filed five years ago, and I don't even know if printing still works.

        I want help from a C coder writing a Maildir patch for Alpine.

      • Note:

        If this issue was formally filed on the web, be sure to include the URL.
