Could you or Russel say what you guys are currently working on w.r.t Fauxton and where other
developers could initially get involved? Maybe this should all be done on the issues.

Ok we'll add some tickets to issues on the Futon.Next repo.

The next thing I'm working on is expanding the plugin system and
building a pluggable backend so that the CouchDB API module can be
swapped out. As for other open areas, there is a lot of functionality
that needs to get fleshed out. It would also be great if someone
wanted to jump on things like _config and _logs. We're in the process
of getting the wireframes together, so for now we're just focusing on
functionality and less on look and feel.
