This week the official coding started. An monday Philip and I had a little chat on how I should proceed from now.
The first thing is to integrate the prototype on which I worked on in the pre-coding time into Picard itself.
Therefor I brached Picard on lauchpad. So feel free to check out my working copy of picard. Just keep in mind that you will also need the latest version of Mutagene to run picard's trunk. (Ubuntu folks go here)
