Hello,



I would first like to mention that I'm interested in contributing whatever I
can find the time to contribute to this project; I had just (a couple of
weeks ago) begun a project that aimed to do what this project has already
done (for the most part) before I knew about Buckminster. My least favorite
thing about programming is trying to resolve dependencies for complex
projects, and as far as I'm concerned, it's worth the effort to make it such
that I can just run a command and have that step done for me. I really like
how you are approaching the problem (although I can't get anything other
than the sample to work myself, but that's a problem in implementation [
which I would like to help with ], not the idea behind it :) ).



If it's ok if I help you guys out, the first thing I'm interested in helping
with, just to get acquainted with the project, is by doing whatever I can to
help smooth out some rough edges in the documentation. This, I thought,
might help me understand everything better, and it would give you someone to
test code coverage, as I'm going to try everything out before I document it.
I would then help as much as I can with the debugging, which would also help
me get acquainted with the code (and, more importantly, the group). After
that, I hope to be in a position to contribute a bit more, if it is desired
of me.



If this is desirable, let me know, and I'll get to work; conversely, if you
wish for me to stay out of the way, that is fine as well :).



Thanks,



Matt Hollingsworth

Hi Matt,
it sounds like we have a lot of common objectives and we would of course welcome your efforts. From
the sound of it, your aim just right. Let me know what I can do do help get you started.

Kind Regards,
Thomas Hallgren
