Love to, but i'm confused as to whether or not i have to compile the entire beast myself to test my patches? Does everything on the hacking page apply to little JavaScript fixes? Is there any sort of tutorial or walk-thru out there?

I suppose these are questions that would be answered with the new documentation suggested.

However, if i know JavaScript and XML but very little c/c++ and i don't have a compiler (with no desire to get one), can i even do anything (safely)?

I'm just afraid my lack of C++ coding skills would significantly hinder me in trying to help.
