we are currently putting together a list of todos. While we are at it we 
also clean the code and remove modules that are deprecated, it wouldn't 
make sense to check them when they will be dropped soon. Once we are 
done with that we would be very happy for people to join the Code 
Provenance Review process for Mapbender Incubation at OSGeo. Read more 
in the Wiki:

The other major construction site is that we are preparing to implement 
prepared statements to address a security issue which finally has been 
resolved by MySQL. As it will require to upgrade to MySQL 5+ we will add 
a switch to select whether or not to use prepared statements. Then we 
can go through each module and prepare to prepare for prepared 
statements. Or something like that.

Meanwhile we would invite you to read through three updated sections in 
the Wiki:

If this is unclear or does not make sense to you please tell us about 
it. We are formalizing theses processes as part of the OSGeo incubation 
process, read more in the OSGeo Wiki:

We are checking how this can be done in SVN. Once resolved we will let 
you know through this list.

For the code - yes we would like to have a look at it and no, we don't 
have the time to do that right now. :-(

But we want to intensify cooperation with new developers who have stood 
outside the fence so far - thus all the above links.
