xplanet project - volunteers sought

Have you all seen the nice developers' map at
http://www.debian.org/devel/developers.loc ?

Here's your chance to help make it better!

The map is generated by xplanet. However, we have a few slight problems....

1) xplanet doesn't build well on slink (well, xplanet does, but it depends
on things that are only in potato). This can be circumvented with a bit of

2) more importantly though, xplanet uses imlib, which requires a X display
to run. This means that we can't generate the map easily from a
non-interactive script (like a crontab or something)

Would someone be interested/willing to look at the xplanet code and patch
together something that uses, say, libjpeg instead of imlib? Please email me
if you are willing to take this one. Thanks!
