This is an appeal for any volunteers which would like to contribute a bit to 
the FreeDOS project. We won't push v1.1 without any help! Sitting and waiting 
until 1.1 comes out won't make things happen. There's simply too much to do.

How could *YOU* help?

You are a coder: If you do know how to debug programs, you could help by 
fixing/improving existing FreeDOS programs. For example UNDELETE still needs a 
complete FAT32 support, we have no installer so far for the v1.1 distro, FDPKG 
should get compatible with mixed "binaries+sources" packages, the FreeDOS 
kernel require some work to be pushed into STABLE state, etc...

You don't do programming, but have some time to spare: There are many things 
you can definitely help us with, even if you are not a programmer.
- The packaging for v1.1 is still incomplete (see 
http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/micro/pc-stuff/freedos/files/fdupdate/ to get an 
idea of what's done so far, all other tools and programs needs to be packaged 
into FreeDOS-structured zip files), it would be nice to have a full and 
complete list of "what is done / what's missing". You can also check out each 
package to see if it is in its latest available version or not.
- You could also translate any missing translations, or check existing ones 
(see http://www.viste-family.net/mateusz/fdlang/ for what we have so far). You 
could also translate FreeDOS into a language which we do not support yet.
- You may do some testings. Installing FreeDOS on a PC, and testing all things 
you can, to find any possible bugs

Do not hesitate to contact me (or write to the FreeDOS mailing list) if you 
have any questions about contributing to the FreeDOS project ;-)
