xoreos needs your help

TL;DR: xoreos needs contributors badly. Especially OpenGL wizards. I might give you cake.

(If you haven’t heard about xoreos yet, please read the short introduction on its website, or my previous blog post about it before continuing with this post. Thanks.)

People who are following xoreos a bit will already have noticed this: development has slowed considerably.
