            Developers and users wanted

            I feel that FK is now at a stage where it's more than useful for most home/small office setups. However, it does need some testing beyond what I can do, and support for more protocols.

            I'd love to hear from anyone with recommendations for protocols/features which they can't do without. Similarly, bug reports, questions, clarifications are invited.

            Patches, of course, are invited.
