Hi Marcel!
I would be delighted to be able to contribute to these efforts, in any way. Is there any document
of your intended strategy or steps taken so far I could read? I found
(which is marked as resolved) and I will take a look at the svn commits.
Is there a timeline for the next release?
Many thanks for your time,

some dependencies to get the size down, but the basis we have there now lends itself better
to doing that.
