A couple videos were recorded and posted to the OLS project page with the intention of helping anyone who wants to modify the Sump VHDL code get oriented. The videos can be viewed here:

There are 4 overview videos that just give a brief tour of the project. (Be sure to click the "Read More" link to see all 4 videos)
There is one video that covers TODO item #20 that is open in the project tracker:
We are trying to create a single bitstream that can dynamically change its memory configuration based on the channel groups that are selected in the client. Currently the end user has to load one bitstream to select 8 channels with a memory depth of 24K and another bitstream for 32 channels with 6K samples. We want to make it as simple as deselecting memory groups.

I'm very interested to hear any ideas people have about making it easier to contribute code and participate in improvements. A couple things I've been thinking about are:
-Moving from svn to git to make distributed development a little easier.
-Making better use of the trackers on the project page for feature requests and direction of what still needs to be done. http://gadgetforge.gadgetfactory.net/gf ... c/tracker/
