Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner!  This is one thing that I'd really
like to see more of in Koha.  If you were interested in writing tests
(even just starting tests for the Koha modules), we'd be a lot better off.
It would also help you learn more about the way Koha works.

Working on the installer/upgrader would be a good thing too.  Steve and
Mike Mylonas have been doing the majority of the work there, and would be
the best to give guidance/advice about it.
