Just curious whats the best way to get developer questions answered around here... the developer forums are pretty stagnant. As far as I understand Rob and Shawn are the main people from the Boxee team who know app development ins and outs. However neither of them are active on the forums Rob's last post November 12th, 2009 and Shawn's May 26th, 2010. This is not meant to be a flame, but rather what is the best way to get questions answered (email, twitter, other)?

More than likly if you post a topic someone will respond. I know there are a few other mods around here that have their own apps so im sure they would chime in and help you out with a question.

Post a question, Rob and Shawn aren't the only people that know how to make apps. :p

The dev forums aren't high traffic because most questions that come up in the dev process have been answered in some form by now. Just search. There's also a ton of info on developer.boxee.tv (http://developer.boxee.tv).

I have no problems helping myself with the dev wiki and posting here in the forum, but there are certain questions that only people from the team can answer. Most of the time these are the questions that simply go unanswered or unsolved in this forum... and it happens over and over again.

Care to give some examples?

I'm working on an app for a Youtube Vlogger, and I built my app exactly as it's shown to, but when the app is started on Boxee, it shows a yellow bar and then it goes back to the main menu. I need to know what might be wrong and how do i format the rss file i use in the app. I copied all the xml data from a playlist of the vlogger and put it in a .rss file. Did I do it right?

My repository url is http://dir.rxw.me/

Could anyone look at it and see what all needs to be done to get this going right?

I want to submit this to Boxee as soon as all the kinks are worked out.

Thanks
