Over the last month, Mattias and I have been building a "Code and
Component Repository" project on Sourceforge. The "CCR" is intended for
developers of all skill levels. It's primary purpose is to convert
existing and freely available library and component source code for use
with Lazarus and the FreePascal compiler. A related goal is helping new
users to get started and succeed with their Lazarus conversion projects.

The CCR site contains all the documentation that is currently available
for Lazarus in a Wiki format. A Wiki is a dynamic knowledgebase that
anyone can contribute to. Any writable page can be edited with a browser
to correct mistakes, add information or create new pages and links. A
Wiki code conversion guide has been posted that is intended for both new
and experienced developers that want to start working with Lazarus. 

For either group, converting a piece of existing code is an excellent
place to begin. It's a self contained task where you can choose a
package that fits your skill level and work at your own pace.  It's also
a significant way to contribute to the project since each new package
helps Lazarus to become a more complete and powerful production tool.

The Lazarus-CCR's main page can be found here:
