Hi, thanks for the quick response!

I haven't really looked at any of the code for RB, so I don't know how
much I time would need to spend in order to get up and running to be
able to create those patches.

Is there a guide somewhere on how to get started, or could you perhaps
tell me here, so that I can consider how much time it would take for
me. I have pretty decent experience with Python, and have played a
little with Django.

I'm not sure about releasing the application - personally I would like
to contribute back but I'll have to verify that I can, first. Plus, it
was created in a short amount of time so it might need some
refactoring and cleaning up before doing something like that.
