Dear Xu,

The work you are doing is really very excellent - well done!

The IPT code is in the Google repository, and contributions are very  

I would suggest if you have a developer wishing to contribute, the  
most effective contributions at this point would be to tackle an issue  
from the issues list, and then submit a patch to the contributers list  
(http://groups.google.com/group/gbif-ipt-contributors).  We can show  
the developers how to create a patch.  Patches would be reviewed and  
then committed to the project after making any necessary changes.   
After a few successful patches, access would be given to the source  
repository and we could coordinate some development work, or make a  
branch for specific new functionality.  This is a process typical in  
open source development and is required to ensure that a common level  
of understanding and procedures are met across the development team.

Thank you very much for your interest,

(GBIF secretariat)
