I've worked on Imaging a while back, but then had not time to finish 1.0.
The problem with imaging is, that the code is optimized towards speed in a
way the makes it hard to encapsulate internal data structures. This is
where a lot of the FindBugs warnings come from [1]. Furthermore we have a
lot of checkstyle violations that need to be fixed [2].
I'm not sure all the problems can be fixed without major changes to the
API. But we should fix this before 1.0.

Note that you can also use our github mirrors at [3] for contributing.
