Hi and Welcome!,
I'm an ex programmer too, I can't work on the project anymore.

Anyway the project is actually held by Dmitry Batarov and Slyshyk Oleksiy,
they changed the source code deeply in the last months, I'm sure they'll be
happy to discuss with you about your solutions.

I'd be very happy if you wanna let me know how did you get aware of the
project and the reasons why you decided to join the team because the
communication part was one of my tasks.

Happy coding!
