I am a research assistent at the University of Hamburg, Department of Computer Science in the Natural Language Systems Group. My main job is not focused on TWiki or content management systems, albeit I've been TWikiing the last 4 years since I installed a beijing for our web appearance working parttime on it. It quickly became obvious that this stuff needed some little tweaks here and there to make it actually usable. So I started to develop the NatSkin incl supplemental plugins , push TWiki as far as possible with two of goals in mind: usability and speed. Actually, TWiki falls short considerably here. Nevertheless, TWiki is fun (hm ....) I quickly found out that I could alleviate part of that pain (don't letting nit look like a wiki). Well, now then I ended up with a hacked beijing and hacked plugins with a hard time to get my botches out to the TWikiCommunity again. This time I'd like to contribute immediately as I switch over to Dakar.

These are my current and past TWiki activities:

These are my future plans:

... and yes, get my PhD done.

Some of this might get directed to one of my student helpers here at the university that get payed for that (not the PhD wink )

Conclusion: I'm too late with tons of stuff I'd like to share with y'all. Most of that is doable w/o write acces to DEVELOP, but anyhow I'd like to help Dakar to become ready by getting some of the smaller buglets out. While doing the NatSkin port I came accross some issues of TWiki that show it still being coupled to the PatternSkin in a rather tight mannor. Most probably I will come up with some PatchProposals that address that ...

It would be really good to pull your experience into the DevelopBranch. I don't mind putting in small patches for people, but at this stage I'm starting to think that the more eyes we have looking at the code, and the more checker-inners able to fix it when it goes wrong, the better.
