I want to help? What next?

Create a ticket in this repository's Issues, fork your code, and commit your changes referencing the ticket in the commit message. This will help heaps once we merge your code in the master branch.

Feel free to contact me at any time to discuss details of your suggestions, before you publicly commit to your fork.

Any help or ideas beyond that, just drop me a line to my email.

Additionally, we tried to avoid creating too many dependencies, which then increases the chances for OS incompatibilities.
