Company seeks Company

So I spent the holidays looking at gtk-webkit. It’s an interesting mix of code, but it has issues.

  • Quite some functions still read NotImplemented();
  • The existing code is very rough. From my looks of it, this is related to missing in-depth knowledge of how the APIs behave, both Webkit APIs and GTK APIs.
  • The whole process, in particular reviewing patches, has a pretty low bus factor.

I’d like to change that. But it’s not very useful if I’d try that as a side project. Both keeping up with all the APIs and becoming respected enough to be a reviewer require a significant time investment. So when I do this, I need to do this as a day job. Which is why I’m posting this here:

If you are happening to own a company that wants someone doing Webkit work, please drop me a line.
