I am looking for an active developer. Besides the fact that developing for
a machine you can't directly test your stuff on is a tedious effort, there
is currently far too much on my plate to take extra things.
The big problem with the atari port currently is that there are too few
actual developers. I do basically all kernel stuff on my own. Julian helps
out with some other stuff every now and then (see ahdilabel), Thomas takes
care of the X11 stuff mostly. Dave is helping me out on building the release
