Back to the basics: improving user experience

Perhaps another idea to lighten the core developers' load...

Invest a little time (a day or so?) to properly set up a VMWare image
that can be downloaded by developers that want to help in any way.

Make it easy to update sources, and easy to build both kernel and
userland stuff, and also to report patches. This way, developers don't
need to invest loads of time into setting up stuff, if it can be done
in one fell swoop.

I, for one, would love to be able to run a VMWare image and dive into
developing and debugging/enhancing.
