Cool.  We need definitely help :)

My main focus is to get the basic framework ready for writing drivers,
such as the pci root bus driver.  Unfortunately, there is still lot of
things to do before we can start writing drivers.

That's great.  Deva is quite crucial and needs special attention.  I
haven't done much on deva because I was waiting for Marcus to
finishing the libhurd-server-cap thing.  Furthermore, I haven't
figured out how exactly the ddf-archive (driver archive for
bootstrapping) to hand over to deva.  If you like to work on this, be
my guest.

The threading library should be finished writing but needs debugging
and lots of fixing.  But before we can start with that, deva and the
default plugin manager (dplm) must be written in large parts.

Right at the moment I'm doing some work on dplm.

That's on the todo list.  Marcus has agreed, that we can use the hurd
project space for a starter.  Later, if needed, we can still move it
to another project (assuming the sv admins can do that).  Something
which we have not decided yet is the project name.  Until now it's
just called DDF which is a rather generic name.  Do you have a good
proposal?  As soon we have a good name I can check it in on sv.

Please go ahead.
