The best place to look right now is http://emacsbugs.donarmstrong.com
and search for bugs in general or in package "ns" (which is Nextstep
Emacs 23.1 Nextstep (Cocoa) is not stable and reliable yet; this is
documented in etc/NEWS. It really needs work. E.g., it crashes in
its event loop quite often for me, but it's not reproducible.
The best way to help with the development is to figure out why (in the
code!) bugs occur and then describe the solution, either verbally or
by writing a patch. Reporting bugs with all information needed to
reproduce is a minimal first step, but it is not very effective when
there are not enough people actually dealing with the reports. So:
debug and write more code.
