Keith, I'm very interested.

By "build and test" do you mean "design and test" or "compile and
test"? My competence to do the former is currently minimal -- I'm
happy to learn, it just may take some time. The latter, on the other
hand, I'm ready to start right now :-).

In a later mail you wrote:

... to which I can only add "Amen".
