I know I'm not very active on the forums / MLs since I'm still getting use to having to wait
for a response. I like the fast-pace style of the IRC channel that's why I do most, well just 
about all of my helping there.. You can find me there at any time and you can see my activity 
on Daniels logs (I think i'm in the top 10 of most talkative...) You can ask him for a link to
that if you'd like to see it since I don't keep it on hand.

It is going to be open source and I will post my documentation to my github and supply you with
a link the second it's ready. I seem to always be changing the direction of my flow-charts but 
it is almost complete.. I've been just collecting a lot of data from different cars and simulating

I haven't been able to get through all of them yet to add the package(), I've been a little busy
with work, I'm sure you understand how that goes. Also, the majority of the PKGBUILDs that I 
maintaine on the AUR were orphaned && broken packages that I just cleaned and re-upped in a effort
to try to single handedly polish the AUR.. It's an forever ongoing process since there's a lot of
mess. But I'm trying to pick up packages whenever there's nothing else going on.

Hopefully they will get more votes.

I'll make sure to comment any exports and give reason to why they're being defined as such.
