I'm still willing to contribute, but like in all open source projects,
it's when I find the time. I'm also a student, you know. :) One
suggestion to speed thing up is to make some decisions on which packages
to include. There have been floating some wishlists on the ml, but a
proper discussion on which packages will definitely go in 1.0 is IMO
necessary so we'll have some clear goals on what we want. Also, we
should settle on a proper format. One thing I really don't like in the
current format is that all instructions are actually in the appendixes!
