The revision is done by manually reviewing patches and the recipe. 
I've been working on a recipe checker, but in the meantime I'm 
still doing that by hand. We cannot compile every contributed 
recipe yet, since we don't have a dedicated machine with 012 
installed for that purpose. Of course having a compile farm (or 
even a simple but dedicated machine) could make things better.

There's a good documentation of the scripts on the GoboLinux 
Documentation Project at the WIKI (http://gobolinux.org/kb).

We don't have one yet.. for now, all the bugs are being reported on 
the mailing list or in the 'Reports on 012' entry on the WIKI.

Oh, there's so many things to do.. :-)
You can start by helping on the documentation, and by testing the 
system and doing fixes and enhancing the scripts, if you feel 
comfortable programming.
