Subject Re: [IBO] Message from Jason

Being a Trustware licensee of IBObjects, I feel that I should be
contributing in one way or another. It however is kinda' difficult for
me (and I believe most other people) to know where to start. I am
thinking it would be easier if you (Jason) broke down the problems at
hand into modules - outlining clearly what sections need sprucing up,
and exactly what the deliverables should be.

This way, a user could easily choose a section they feel they can help
in, and submit the code to a repository for QA.

I am not an expert in Component Design but I am sure I can contribute
something - however subtle, plus I am sure there are IBO users that are
and can make a worthwhile contribution. They only need specifics.
