As a developer myself I know what a drag it is to document your code. The difference here is that it is almost impossible to come in out of the blue and jump into this project with any sort of speed. When Moz was only at M8 (!! Wow, it's come a long way !!) I began following it regularly, and was very interested in helping out the cause. After peaking at the code and trying to decipher cryptic classes and references without any detailed info, I put that idea on hold. I even thought about applying for the internship that NS offered a couple years back (I'm a senior at the University of Vermont now). Anyway...I think that with all of the good points above, and the talk about NS dev team working on a 0.9.2 exclusively, if any more outside help is wanted, better doc and brain dumps are going to be necessary...
