Prompt [SIGNUP] [DEVELOPMENT] signup sheet for aosp build team

The vast majority of us seem to want CM11, myself included. So, If you're decently capable, let me know! I fully understand @Angel_666 's frustration, namely why he's waiting to see tw kitkat - being a lone dev probably sucks, and trying to make a 4.4 port based on 4.2.2 x86 things with incomplete sources is insanely difficult. Let's change that. Stop being a part of the "gimme gimme" crowd, come do something about it!

For to-be Developers:
You're expected to have at least a basic understanding of Linux (command line). If you don't possess such an understanding, you're in way over your head, as even the advanced experience a kryptonite effect with the intel clovertrail platform. Basic understanding doesn't necessarily mean you need to know every single piece of a kernel. Just know your basic commands (such as cd, mkdir, etc). There are people, including myself, willing to teach you how to compile from source as long as you have this foundation. NOTE; If you only meet the VERY basic criteria, you will be required to do a cm11 build before being added to this list. Meaning, have someone walk you through it, or follow this guide for D2LTE. (you can replace d2lte with a device you have) If you get a feel for it, welcome to the team.
the exception to this rule is if you have valuable experience which, though might not be android perse, is definitely wanted.

For Testers:
If you want to be a tester, you're expected to be at least what's known as a "power user". Meaning, don't just say "bla bla bla is broken". Logs logs logs! Help debug!


For ALL:
Know how to use Google. Actually try to find what you need before asking about it, otherwise we clog things up with unnecessary questions/answers.

Now that the guidelines are down, some words of encouragement!
If we can just get our foot in the door, we can blow it wide open and pave the road for other roms (such as omni, aokp, beanstalk) which will be SIGNIFICANTLY easier to port with a solid foundation.

Comment if you're interested.

Battery Full Post the rom as it is

Restl3ss,

please post the rom as you have/as it is no matter how clunky it may be.
i will accept it as a cwm/twrp backup if that's how it needs to be.
upload it to a regular/decent/respectable hosting site. dev-host, androidfilehost
cloud servers for me at least are unacceptable.
i will need the original [angel's] boot image and your [yours] boot image.
i have no patience for the build process [rom]. i prefer to do things in my own way.

i am willing to help provided the above conditions are met.

thank you for reading.

I've never done any android stuff, but have been modding and building custom Linux kernels for years. Getting suck of this tablet as-is, so happy to help.
