I do think I am capable of doing it for most parts of the code. It is true
that peter wrote the code originally, but I have now
been working with the code for the better part of a half year. So if I were
to mentor, it coulld be all of the C code, but the not JS code.

The JS code is surely the easiest part to get involved in, since it does
not really require a lot of in depth knowledge with the internals of

A httpd module, that wraps around a virtual DocFormates API, would also be
easy to mentor.

Finally expanding our test harness would be easy.

Well hopefully next year we will have a stable DocFormats, and more C
developers involved, so the question will be different.
