This is great to hear! I'm sure the Gdk guys will be very happy
to have some help. You should definitely start hanging out in #webkit
on irc.freenode.net and get to know people, and familiarize yourself
with our Bugzilla installation at http://bugs.webkit.org/. You
probably already know this from the multitude of other projects
you've worked on, but many small patches made throughout your work
are much easier to deal with than one large patch at the end of it all.
Some people who can probably provide advice on IRC are Krzysztof
Kowalczyk (kjk) and Mike Emmel (not sure of his IRC nick) for the Gdk
port, and Oliver Hunt (olliej), Nikolas Zimmermann (WildFox), Rob
Buis (rwlbuis), and Eric Seidel (MacDome) for SVG. I know there is
some SVG animation support that was landed by Eric recently.
Out of curiosity, who is your mentor on this project? Do they
have any WebKit experience, or purely OpenMoko?
Welcome to WebKit!
