-= Your Help =-
Portability is one of the most important things about this project.
We don't expect the early releases to work on every system, but it
should work on YOUR system! If it doesn't please help us figure out
why, and write a patch and test case to fix the problem, if you can!
The codebase is a very manageable size.
-= Code =-
You can get the code from the web page; the version control system we
use is very open and welcoming to new developers.
