Hey,

The best way to get started is definitely writing scripts! 

I haven't been keeping up with this list, so I'm not sure why your previous script slipped through the cracks, but it 
may be for a number of reasons:
- Nobody considered it useful enough
- It was poorly written
- People were too busy and simply forgot

I always lean towards the latter by default. If you think it's well written and useful, then it may have just been 
forgotten. If you aren't sure, go over it again, and make sure the code is clean, well documented, and easy to 
understand. Then, submit it again! 

Ron

Hi, 

I would like to ask about what is the best way to start contributing
to nmap? I saw NSE script ideas and I liked several of them. I'm also
interested in creating scripts for testing IPv6 vulnerabilities. So
is the NSE script creation the best way for me to start contributing?

I also sent email regarding IPv6 RA flood NSE flood, but I didn't
receive any answers regarding it and possibilities of accepting the
script into the library. Could I ask for some feedback?

Kind regards,

Adam
