  2. How can I help?

What is the current status?

The software has just turned Alpha. This means:
- there is something you can actually download, compile and run
- the software is buggy, prone to crashes and incomplete
- documentation is patchy
- testing is patchy
- no effort has been put into: porting, internationalisation or accessibility yet
- think of the architecture being a spike (something written fast to provide a starting point for discussing how to do it right).
The protocol has been documented, but so far only received 5 reviews (no flaws found so far).
Outreach has not yet started.

How can I help?

- download the software, install it, use it, report errors
- code reviews
- join the architectural discussion
- porting to other platforms
- translating to other languages (probably not yet)
- re-implement in other coding languages (eg Java)
- writing tests
- improving the documentation
- help write it!
- spread the word
- review the protocol
- spread the word
