I am considering helping out in this way.  Let me get my project to a better 
state before starting to look for contributions from me.

Thank you for your offer.  At this point, I think that the best way is for you 
to continue as you have supporting the community on this mailing list.  

I guess the big question is "What is the standard way of doing things?".  I 
think many of the Jifty standards ways I have only found through trial and 
error.  Once I have found them, I have come to appreciate the approach and 
try my best to leverage their power.  

Has anyone considered writing a book?
