Hi Marc,

Sounds good.  I'm sure your credentials are fine.   For starters, create 
an account on http://project.geeklog.net.  Email me your username.  Well 
start by giving you some fairly basic tasks to get you up to speed.  
Right now I am working on converting the GL2 authentication & 
authorization (A&A) service to use the latest PHP5 beta.  I would 
encourage you to get PHP5 installed.  You'll want to ensure you compile 
PHP --with-mysql --with-pgsql --with-zlib (for installing PEAR packages) 
and --with-xmlrpc (we be offering an optional xmlrpc interface to A&A).

I'll probably start by having you convert the translation class over to 
use PHP5.  When you get PHP5 installed and setup, join us in our IRC 
room in #geeklog on irc.freenode.net.  That's where most of the 
developers hang out.

I've got a pretty good amount of experience with php, I'm only 17 and I've never received 'proper' traning but I'm somewhat competent of object oriented coding.  I'm sorry to say I don't really have any experience with PEAR, but I can adhere to basic coding standards like good comments and indenting and whatnot.    Lemme know if there's anything I can do to help the development of Geeklog 2, this is my summer so I can donate a few hours per week at least.    I do have experience with cvs, so I imagine I could probably get started coding pretty soon.    Thanks,  Marc
