I know :-) was just hoping somebody took the bait and told me in which area I could help out that would classify as a kind of 'janitor' job. This project is rather complex if you're new to it and as Zoltan already pointed out in an other post that info is spread around (thanks btw).
Btw, SVN compiles fine on OpenSuSE 11.1, 64bit. (Btw, some older posts talk about verison 0.3.7, SVN announces itself as 0.4.0.)
The KDE4 port (found this in an older posing, hosted on private GIT) stops compiling after a while with the info (Didn't check my configuration yet, maybe my

Interesting. Had a look into it and the version from sourceforge compiled
almost out of the box. The file 'decomp' had a hardcoded 'automake-version' in it and some files only needed '#include <string.h> added in the header. After that it compiled fine using GCC-4.3.2.
Anyway, still open for recommendations regarding what I could do. This could include coding, HTML, testing or QA. I'm open for suggestions, but keep it simple as a start. (As I'm not a native English speaker, documentation is probably out of my league)
