and we will be happy to accept your contributions and welcome you to the
team ;-)

We should probably create a CONTRIBUTING.md, similar to the one we have
in other projects such as datalad/duecredit/etc, describing overall
layout, use of duecredit, etc... which could help to orient you.  We
will do that soon(ish).  Particular aspect is -- testing.  All (new) code
should get covered by tests so there is assurance that it works
correctly now, and we would be able to maintain it in the working order
in the long run.

Do you have any particular algorithm, function, ... you would like to
start with? ;-)
