Another "let us code" post here - I don't particularly care how the CAN shield turns out, and it's not going to have any effect on what the CAN API looks like. It's getting to the point that someone is going to fork off and make their own CAN library, but if the efforts happening behind the scenes of this thread are the "officially blessed" efforts, it would be a shame to have conflict in the future.

A GitHub repo with a "This code does not work." line in the README should suffice.

Palliser, you might consider doing your development in the open on GitHub, even before you think it's at a good draft stage. No reason we can't start helping you out already!

I'm excited to see work with CAN on the Arduino Due - I'm one of the developers of the OpenXC platform that roundhouselabs mentioned (openxcplatform.com) and while we started prototyping with the Arduino at Ford, we had to move to the chipKIT to get a little bit more performance and CAN controllers on the MCU. I'd love to get the OpenXC translator working with the Due; all we really need is the library API - I read through this thread but I can't quite tell if there is progress happening somewhere else on the software side.

If there's a work-in-progress repository somewhere, I'd love to help out. Looking for examples of simple CAN APIs that would exist at about the same level of abstraction as the other core Arduino libraries, the one provided by the mbed library may be a good start: http://mbed.org/handbook/CAN
