manpage is a start.
There may also be library differences in which you will have to resolve. In essence, you are will be the first to port the application to OpenBSD, so there may be a myriad of issues which will need to be resolved.
My suggestion would be to search through what applications & frameworks have already been ported to OpenBSD, & one of simpler ways available is through OpenPorts
. Recognize that the OpenPorts site lists all ported third party applications to -current
. If you are running -release
, some of the ports listed will be recently approved, & will not be available to -release
users until OpenBSD 4.9. At the bottom of each page describing ported applications is a commit log of activity. From this, you will be able to discern whether the application is recent or established.
...but can you propose something for a beginner? (and after that, the installation questions are coming )
Actually, it will be better if you find a problem in which you
have interest. There will be at some point hard problems for you to resolve. If you are interested in the overall project, you may have enough motivation to get past the hard parts. If you aren't committed, it will be very easy to abandon the entire endeavor.
As ideas, build a family Webpage, a fan page for some organization you admire, a site which explains something you uniquely understand, or build some tool which can be used by a non-profit to advertise their services, track some resource(s), etc.
