Where is the tangoGPS community? (was: TangoGPS font size for speed indicator)

Apologies for reviving a 3-month-old thread.... I'm not actually
interested in the `Marcus vs. Risto' fight; but this thread did
raise some questions for me about how I should go about being
part of to the tangoGPS developer community, myself--mainly,
*is* there actually a developer community, and where is it?

More specifically...:

Those are all measures only of an end-user community.

Having a large, thriving end-user community *is* excellent, and also
important--so I'd like to both congratulate you and thank you for that

However: I'd like to know where the *developer* community is for tangoGPS--
and please don't take that the wrong way, there's nothing backhanded
in that remark; really, I'm interested in developing tangoGPS, and
communicating and collaborating with other likeminded people.
I have a set of patches, already--what should I do with them?
Where should I post them for posterity? Where is the mailing list?
Is there an IRC channel? Is there a wiki? Is there a bug-tracker?
Is there a public version-control archive? Where are all of these things?
