Subject Re: Your coding practices and documentation are not done well.

Thanks for your e-mail Peter. We are still transitioning into Apache from
a previous "run-n-gun" type of organizational structure so there will be
some amount of time where we're all a little out of sync. Additionally we
don't have many full-time developers working on the project at the moment
(by my count somewhere around 6), to cover five different mobile platform
implementations + cross-platform documentation ... We would love
contributions from you if you feel you can make it better!

Unfortunately this is not an option under Apache. My understanding is that
the wiki and source code servers must be on Apache infrastructure, so
moving forward GitHub will be less of a de-facto collaboration point. We
are still working on bringing the wiki up online, so once we have all of
the infrastructure figured out we will be sure to update the community.
