There's no big changes in the CVS tree planned for the next few weeks -
at least not that I know of. If you start from something like the 0.8
version it's already tagged and if the tree does evolve we can create a
new branch retrospectively.

The best bet is as patches against 0.8 or the current head revision. I
don't think the tree will change massively in that timeframe - I'm going
on holiday for 3 weeks, so I certainly won't be committing!
I look forward to seeing the fruits of your efforts. Do give a shout if
there's any help you need or questions you have.
