Hi Jehan,

Thanks for the links and the tips!

I'm going to take a look at the bugzilla, I suppose there'll be enough
work for me ;) I have to configure xchat to connect in the irc (it's
been a while since I use Mibbit for some irc channels...)

I saw this yesterday, it is very interesting but I don't know if I have
enough time for four weeks of learning, is the resources or anything
about the "course" going to be freely available once it is finished? :D

Thanks again! And maybe see you next time on IRC :)
