Hi, this sounds excellent!

The first thing to do is to get Kai to set up a public git repo for you 
on git.worldforge.org. While you can do your work on a local branch of 
the main Ember code, and then push the changes to me, I would rather see 
a public repo to where you push code as you go along. It's easier for us 
to then provide you with feedback and help.
This wiki page contains info on what you need to send to Kai: 

What's your user name on Launchpad? I'll assign you to the blueprint 
(which did you want to start working on?).
