'I can help with the graphics, and compile a great portion of the apps
needed once a barebones base has been created
and make some scripts aesthetically pleasing to the eyes'

'The kernel makes the OS, the packages make the distro
creative people make it happen in real time'

'I can only offer limited help with testing further along'

Cool dog.
Great project.
The world's most wonderful developers.
