I have a small experience in TeX (I wrote a plain TeX style for 
gregorian chant, http://home.gna.org/gregorio), and I am very interested 
in LuaTeX and all the features it will bring to the TeX world. For 
example LuaTeX allowed me to correct some very annoying bugs that 
happened sometimes in my style, and that couldn't be corrected in plain 
TeX. So thank you for you great job!

It happens that I have some time now, and during next month. So I would 
be interested in helping you, especially for OTF integration in LuaTeX. 
For now I'm using the code present here 
http://luatex.bluwiki.com/go/Use_a_TrueType_font to deal with OTF, but 
it's not really satisfying (no ligatures for example). So if it is 
possible to help with an OTF engine like in XeTeX, I would be very happy 
to start it, or continue it. Please tell me how I should proceed!

Thank you in advance,
