Please don't be shy (if you guys are reading this): I find it better if 
you "play" with the actual code and commit to the Git at Alioth, than 
trying out privately and only commit the polished results.

A nice feature of a Version Control System is the ability to roll back 
if things go haywire.  And this team has only few active developers 
already (me and Luke) so there is very little chance that you disrupt 
other work even if you make mistakes.

A nice feature of making mistakes in public (if noone is mean and laugh 
at it, obviously!) is the aftermath: discussing how to do things better 
(there are often more than one way, and even if I am pretty experienced 
and stubborn with a specific approach, I am probably still abl to shed 
some light on alternatives) and how to avoid stumbling - optional 
routines, patterns and tools that can be woved together as a web to 
catch common errors.

So come forward and let's play! :-)
