I'm interested in helping out with the Vorbis and Tarkin projects (in my 
already limited time!).  I don't have an extensive background in all of the 
mathematics involved, but it looks like my mathematics from undergrad Physics 
is good enough to get a grasp on it.

In the past few days I've started doing some reading on the mathematical 
basics. As part of my reading, I found this GPL'd code for Differential 
Wavelet Integer-based Transform (DWIT) real-time video codec by Peter Ørbæk 


Although the transmission code currently only runs on an SGI Octane, receive 
capability is apparently there for Linux, Solaris and HP-UX.  Seems like the 
codec is aimed at higher bandwidth environments, but perhaps there is room 
for adaption?  Perhaps this source be useful in the assisting the progression 
of Tarkin?  I haven't been able to try it myself, since I just found it 
yesterday and don't have an Octane box!

Is there a list of outstanding tasks around?  Can I do any documentation etc.?


btw, is there a tarkin-dev list out there?
