I'm interested in becoming a sci developer. I've been using gentoo to do computational oceanography for a couple of years now, and it would be nice to know how the whole system works. How do you sign up? How much time would it demand? The time might be a problem--I'm tyring to finish my PhD right now, but if there's too much to do, perhaps I could join up later...?
