Hm... I don't want to discourage anyone from Viengoos development; but
there are two things you need to keep in mind:

1. Viengoos development is very involved. It's not at a stage yet where
anyone could just jump in and start helping out with minor fixes.
Rather, the kind of tasks presently open require solid groudwork. Neal's
reply should give you some idea of that :-)

2. If your interest is really in completing the GNU system, rather than
in doing research work, Hurd/Mach would be a much better match. It does
have some issues -- but it's what we have today, almost ready for
everyday use.

Having said that, Viengoos is a very interesting and important project
-- you are very welcome to contribute :-) Just trying to avoid
