Would you be interested in contributing code for the kind of view
appropriate for tablets? The VASSAL 4 plan is for Views to be entirely
separate from the backend. I'd like to have someone familiar with
tablet development on board, as none of us have done anything like that

There is no documentation for the buildFile format used in VASSAL 3.1.
If you need to read it, the bese thing to do is look at the code.

There is no documentation for the format we're going to switch to because
we're still designing it, but I fully intend to produce some. We'd welcome
help there, also.
