I really think you guys should just get started. :-)

From what I can tell, the projects (Nirvana?) are not active. I tried to get 
some information late last year, and some people tried to be helpful, but I 
couldn't get much done in terms of getting the already ported code from the 
Nirvana repo (Java Script) to compile. In any case, I have high hopes for 
such a porting effor of WebKit, and I'd like to help as much as I can. 
However, I am of no use with regards to gory build system issues. So after 
someone could get the infra structure setup, I'd like to help as much as I 
can. Though currently, my time is limited to the weekends at most. But like 
I said, I'd like to join once an infra structure is already in place. Please 
use jam if you can.

Best regards,
