The current frontends for linux are giving me a nice big soft rubbery one. Is anyone working on a DirectFB or even just a plain FrameBuffer frontend that doesn't suck? If so, I'm willing to put in some serious time on this.
Most specifically I plan on bringing to the table an XM direct interface, an embedded Perl interpreter for configuration management, scripting, etc.
I'm familiar with setting up autoconf/automake, work well in a CVS/subversion environment and ready to move on this. If someone here is working on something, I'll team up with you, if not I'm going to start diving in.
