One of the biggest problem I have in getting involved in a new open source project is finding the best place to start. I'm attemting to outline a few simple needs and how long I think it will take a reasonably seasoned Java developer. (Meaning if you've never walked outside of your struts app, used CVS or touched a shell then it may take a tad longer). Some of these are critical and some are not. If you're interested in taking it up, just reply to the thread and outline your basic approach, when you think you'll be done. If someone has already done so, then reply and see where they are on it, maybe you can work with them!
