Hi everybody, my name is Daniel Jalkut and I'm just getting my feet  
wet with WordPress hacking.  I spend most of my time doing Mac  
desktop software engineering.

I had been wondering for a long time where the "developers hangout"  
was for WordPress, so I hope I've found it.  I often wonder why  
things behave a certain way or another so I hope that by lurking here  
for a little while I'll pick up by osmosis some of the design  
constraints of the project, and eventually be more suited to making  
my own submittable changes.

I've been running WordPress on my blog for almost a year now and have  
generally been very happy. To facilitate better understanding of the  
technical side of the project, and to put my mind at ease about  
updating my site with latest public releases, I've put together a  
pretty comprehensive set up where my live web site and local Mac  
share access to a repository with several working copies of the  
WordPress sources in them.

If you're working on WordPress from a Mac, you might find my blog  
entry detailing this setup and integration with Apple's Xcode  


Also since I'm pretty naive I may have overlooked some easier way to  
accomplish some of the goals I was seeking. Let me know if you have  
any advice for how to better streamline the "sandboxing" of  
development copies of WordPress and integrating with live deployments.
