That sounds nice. We welcome help and patches. Please subscribe to 
icecast-dev http://lists.xiph.org/mailman/listinfo/icecast-dev
We use that mailing list and the #icecast IRC channel to discuss ongoing

While most of our code is cross-platform there might be acouple of 
windows specific things where your experience might come in handy. For 
example we're switching to mingw builds for windows, but need to figure 
out how to ensure that the Icecast executable can be started as a 
Windows service.

http://www.icecast.org/svn.php - has instructions for icecast sources. 
ices sources are also there just need to change the url slightly:

svn co http://svn.xiph.org/icecast/trunk/ices ices

Open tickets can be found here:
Please ask on IRC or the mailing list before taking a ticket and working on it if it's not clearly marked as free to take and work on.

It would be very much appreciated if you could introduce yourself and what you're planning to do on the developer mailing list. That helps to align work and avoids problems.



PS: Please notice that the mailing lists don't explicitly set reply-to, so check that your mail client sends back to the list and not to the original sender.
