We do, we do!

There are many things to be done, it depends on what you are looking for.

1. Patch testing.  It sounds "easy" but it is not and it is _very_
important.  Currently, we need to test a couple of patches like AI
diplomacy (2413), new settler code and advanced rampage (4026).  Per is
responsible for the former two (I think you should wait for him to post
the newest versions) and I am responsible for the rampage (needs to be
tested in the present form).

2. Reviewing patches.  Similar to 1, but also involves reading and 
bitching about the code.  More bugs you find, more sweets you get.

3. Writing your own patches.  There are jobs to be done like 3584 (pretty 
tedious) or updating, say, find_nearest_safe_city to use the new Path 

Any questions, just ask,
