How do I get hold of QTM's recent sources?
For starters, QTM's very recent sources are not in a runnable state. I am presently adding the functionality of multiple accounts to QTM; I expect to get it compiling within a couple of weeks. If you want a stable QTM, use the stable version (0.7.1.3).
That said, if you want to help with the development, I am using Mercurial for source code management; please see the Mercurial home page for information on how to use the software. You will need to install Mercurial and then clone my central repository; to do that, use this command:
hg clone http://hg.sharesource.org/qtm
I badly need translators right now. If you can translate the software into any other languages, by all means contact me: Matthew Smith <email@example.com>.
Packages of Mercurial are available for all the major Linux distributions. I have packages for Ubuntu (Hardy and Intrepid) in my personal package archive on Ubuntu's Launchpad; for OpenSUSE, there is a repository which contains up-to-date versions of all the major version control programs, including Mercurial (10.3, 11.0, 11.1). For information on using these repositories, see here.
