BeOS & Derivatives Haiku, everybody's favourite open source BeOS recreation, is currently undertaking a push towards a second alpha release, a beta, and even R1. Thanks to funds raised, Haiku has been able to hire several contractors to code full-time for the project, leading to serious progress.

Suggest you download the copies of BeBook and HaikuBook that are available thru the main site.

The problem is, those primarily only cover writing apps for Haiku/BeOS ; what he's after based on his comment sounds more like documentation of the OS code itself, which neither of those will provide.

You are absolutely correct. I have already read most of the documentation on the Haiku web site, but the OS code is much more complex and has little to no documentation. The people on IRC were friendly and eager to help, but they were not familiar with the part of the system I wanted to modify. My next step is to pose my questions on the mailing list, but it feels like it's taking a very long time to make some relatively simple changes. I imagine everyone who has the time to write good documentation is too busy adding new functionality.
