Crystal Space, CEL and Ares are large projects that encompass a great many technologies and disciplines with developers worldwide. As such, to develop them effectively, the projects are broken up into core elements i.e. libraries, plugins, test applications, documentation etc. These core elements have sub elements i.e. for sound, rendering, scripting etc. Each of these require either a small, medium or vastly greater amount of knowledge to develop and maintain them.
To accomplish the collective projects goals, we need people to assist us in any way they can. To aide in this effort. Below is a list of experienced CS, CEL and Ares developers and contributors to the projects who have volunteered to assist both newcomers and those who are already part of the projects, to accomplish what they would like to help with and contribute to.
Below is a list of current mentors with their IRC nicknames in brackets. Each individual will add contact details and information on the areas they are able and willing to help people in.

As a member of the development team and release manager for Crystal Space and CEL, I am extremely busy most of the time. However, I am happy to be contacted generally regarding most things CS/CEL related and the below subjects.
- CS and CEL planning - The BIG picture! :-)
- CS and CEL Project cycle, promotion and management.
