Hi jonathan,

I'd suggest taking this sort of discussions in batik-dev. That mailing
list is not only for Batik committers, it's meant for "developers
working on or wanting to work on Batik itself" [1]. ;-)

Response inline...

Thanks! I hope it will be a great year for Batik and SVG in general. :-)

Cool! B-)

I already shared my TODO list recently [2] and I must confess I don't
have any insights about Batik internals needing some love but, as
Thomas already hinted a few, I don't think it will be much necessary.

I'd only add that helping out triaging hanging bugs (without patches
[4]) or testing existing patches [5] might help while entering the
project (at least, from my experience). Nevertheless, given that your
Java skills seem to be above average, I'd say working in the code base
itself (following Thomas ideas) would bring more value to the project.
Just my 2 cents... :-)

Yes, I just noticed it was already received and processed ("Jonathan
Shaw Wood" became part of the list [5]). :-)
