Inspired by the disparaging comments of Rob Weir (such as http://lwn.net/Articles/450900/ ) and the good vibes about the project from Michael Meeks's blog, I finally put my money where my mouth is and managed to get a patch into this release.
It made the features page, not trying to toot my own horn, that's not the purpose of this post.
I just wanted to say that getting the patch included was very easy, and the team very helpful.
It was very rewarding.
So I encourage you to get a build going and check out the Easy Hacks page.
