I'm currently not mapping, but part of it is the frustration with the 
software (seems I'm quite picky about small things :p ). If it picks up, 
chances are I'm on again.

Apart from that, I'm willing to do the integration work which means I'll 
set me up an environment (Windows & Linux) and test things again. My 
tree contains bug fixes and changes, but that's the joy of using 
so-called topic branches with git: I can provide them separately and if 
deemed too radical, no one merges them and it's fine.

I can be on IRC tonight I think, I'm in, er.. CEST I guess (always 
getting confused with the time zones) or whatever Austria currently is 
in. Say from 19:00 CEST on I can be "there". I'd say in light of 
nostalgia, irc.quakenet.org would be very appropriate, we could hang out 
on #zeroradiant for example.
