Sorry, seems something went wrong with me here. 

If you (or anyone else) wants to help, you can choose from quite a lot
of different things to get started. 

Some of the open areas are:
 * We need a PCI bus driver pretty
 * having an FCode evaluator for paflof (written in Forth)
   would be nice
 * device interface is completely unimplemented
 * lots of high level words (i.e. see) are missing

You find some additional status information on the Roadmap page

The CVS tree contains a directory called fcode/ which contains some
implementations of forth words already. If you find something that is
still missing in there and in paflof, just send a mail to this list
that you want to implement it.

Check the Docs page for the IEEE specs before you start implementing.

Feel free to ask any further questions.
