One question we as RISC OS developers should be asking the community is: who out might be able to help out, but is being held back for one reason or another. For many the problem is time - sadly the TARDIS Porting Project hasn't progress too far - and the usual way to create time (in exchange for money) is one we're having difficulty with. However, are there people out there who have time, but not the skills? Is the problem that we're bad at passing on the skills? Are there people out there with time and skills but no necessary hardware or software? Is there some way they could be supported? Is there something others who don't have time could do to help out, bearing in mind the usual substitute for time (money) is pretty inefficient (pay someone to fix your car and it costs a fortune, do it yourself and it's a lot cheaper).

Is there enough willing out there to sit down and tackle the problems?
