Want to chat on IRC?
brho hangs out (usually alone) in #akaros on irc.freenode.net. The other devs aren't aware of the brilliance of IRC, so maybe you can find them on twitter or something.

Want to contribute code back to the project?
We'll accept bugfixes. If you have something larger in mind, contact us before getting started. Any code submitted must be licensed "GPLv2 or later".
