Since I haven't figure this out yet, I'm just enumerating my list of
places where I'd like help and I'm asking people to contact me.  I'd like
a better story there (e.g. join this mailing list).

Basically, the wiki is a great place for me to disseminate information
but I need a way for people to raise issues as testers or "concerned"
individuals.  As they aren't developers, webkit-dev seems like the
wrong place.

The MathML implementation in Mozilla has its own mailing list, as
is the general practice for a lot of the major components of
Mozilla.  That's not the case for WebKit, which is really good
in many ways, but I think you all might not be so interested in
random questions about MathML.

I would also like to put up a build server so people can get
and test the mac version.  I don't have a machine that I can put
to this task yet.  It would have to regularly pull the source
and apply a set of patches as I suspect most of my code
will be in patches for quite awhile.

Ideally, the best outcome would be a binary distribution with
a place for testers to chat about their experiences, problems,
and other issues.
