I just want to thank you for your work for bringing this amazing technology to 
FreeBSD. I also browsed their forums, and noticed that 0.2.0 rc1 is seriously 
broken for many users, so its probably better to wait for final (if you were 
going to update it to rc1).

As to your request - I'm neither a commiter, nor qualified (I'm not a 
programmer) to help you with maintaining beryl (only tried "porting" little 
things like kde styles or windecos - stuff that don't debugging code skills). 

Thanks again for your efforts (and the x11 team)!
