Thanks for your honest email Gary!

I find myself some time available at the moment and would like to make 
myself useful to the project.

I'll probably need a hand getting acquainted so will refrain from wading 
in on the design discussion till I'm up and running in some sense.

Apologies for going over old ground, but 
is obviously up but had dead links.

So I'm wondering where the latest and greatest code is and if we have 
any open bug list I could get working on?

I've found which 
similarly has dead links.

My Subversion is very rusty (haven't used in about 8 years) but can get 
up to speed if necessary.

I did find which looks like the 
most recent thing someone was doing was playing around with SaltStack 
about 2 years ago.

Is there anything else I've missed? Is anyone using IRC for the quick 
back and forth as I will probably have a few inane questions that people 
won't want to be spammed with.

The last project I did was Django Rest Framework based so can probably 
hit the ground running there. UI stuff, again rusty as it's a while 
since I've done front end stuff but happy to give it a shot if that's 
what really needs doing.

Basically I'm happy to be a minion for the time being until I've found 
my feet!
