Hello Benjamin,

Thank you for a starting point and would like to explore further with this.  Please point me in the right direction to how I can help in the cleaning of the WebKit testing infrastructure please.
This will also allow me to understand how all you guys work together and understand the procedures etc..

Hi Jason,

With a background in development (both windows and MAC) I was wanting to get involved in an open source project that I believe is going to make the world a greater place. So I have decided to get involved with the WebKit project.
I would like to start of by performing the boring work of reformatting code to suite the guidelines as stipulated on the webkit.org<http://webkit.org> website (and double check that they are still up to date), and would like recommendations to which parts of the project could do with the re-formatting first up.  ( I feel this will get me to know the framework, and structure of the code base well, before I can start inputting my coding and help. )

Any feedback to where to start would be very much appreciated.

Also I have the code all built, however if I ./run-safari I get

Can't find built framework at "/Users/jason/research/webkit/WebKitBuild/Release/JavaScriptCore.framework/Versions/A/JavaScriptCore."

I will work out the problem, but in case someone knows exactly what I have done wrong, it may save me some time.

First welcome to WebKit :)

I am sure there is a better use of your time than fixing the coding style.

A side project of mine is improving and cleaning some of WebKit testing infrastructure. There are some fairly easy tasks related to that if you are interested.
I am sure others will have ideas of easy things to do to get started.

For your build/run issues, it will be easier to ask on IRC #webkit than on the mailing list.
