If you want to make a major contribution, please ask first. It has already happened a couple of times that somebody started working at something that had already been done but not released to the public yet, and we really do not want anybody to waste time.

People willing to port VICE to other platforms are always welcome. Windows, MacOS and Acorn RISC-OS ports are in the works, so if you are interested in those platforms, please let us know. There is plenty of work to do and any sort of help can be very useful.

comp.emulators.misc, discussing emulators in general.
