[webkit-help] Haiku port launcher code

Hi all,

this is my first post to the list, so I'll quickly introduce myself... I am 
one of the developers behind the Haiku operating system and have recently 
become interested in picking up the Haiku port of WebKit. After checking 
out a number of browser options for Haiku, I believe the WebKit port is the 
most promising, since the code base is very clean and allows for a most 
integrated native browser application.

The past days I have worked on various issues in the Haiku port and have 
gotten it back to what it used to be and beyond. I've checked out a current 
revision from the master WebKit subversion repository and am ready to begin 
creating Bugzilla tickets with my patches.

On to my first question: I have noticed that the code for the HaikuLauncher 
is not part of the repository at all, but other ports do have a browser 
shell included, sometimes seemlingly much more, like in the chromium case. 
Shall I submit patches for this code as well? Or just for the port itself?

Thanks for this awesome framework and project!

Best regards,
