We have a "way" of software development?  When did that happen? :-)

In all seriousness ... what, exactly, do you mean?  I guess our current
way is, "Anyone who's interested, please contribute!".  I don't see how
that's really much different than other open-source packages.

Also, as long as we're on the subject ... if people want to submit patches
to the list, perhaps formatting them with git format-patch (since, hey,
I went to the whole trouble to convert everything to git) might be
worthwhile.  Or perhaps just doing that when everyone agrees on the
code would make things easier (because the patch could be processed with
git am).
