I understand. I'll direct any queries to Erik either on the mailing list of
via IRC. What time zones are the major developers in and what time are they
generally free (if at all) to talk on IRC?

I have gone through the blueprint and will start exploring sometime this
week. Any pointers on which source files to peek into to begin my journey?

I have some issues with github as I am behind a firewall and I have had
unsuccessful attempts in the past in trying to get it to work with SSH
tunnels (if someone happens to know any resources specific to github, I
would be extremely grateful). I'll discuss with Kai about setting up a
repository on the WF git server. If there are any issues, I can always
communicate via patches on the list (unless there are objections of course).

No problems there. Thanks for all your help!
Excited to be aboard! :D
