[plt-scheme] Call for Participation: Writing Typed Scheme wrappermodules

I would be happy to attribute something to PLT Scheme, as PLT has given so 
much to me. However, before promising anything, give me time to study and 
select a topic I can handle. I am cautious, because some time ago I 
volunteered to scribble documentation and was not able to fulfill my promise 
(I still feel ashamed, I am not much of a scribbler) May be you have a 
suggestion what module would be a task I could look into before deciding I 
can handle the task.

Subject: [plt-scheme] Call for Participation: Writing Typed Scheme 

> Typed Scheme is a language for writing PLT Scheme programs that are
> statically checked for type errors.  Right now, Typed Scheme handles a
> large portion of the PLT Scheme language.  However, to use Typed
> Scheme effectively, we need libraries that work with it.  For this
> task, we're looking for help.
> We'd like volunteers for writing wrapper modules that adapt untyped
> libraries to Typed Scheme. This task is very easy for the smallest
> libraries, but can be much more complicated for larger, complex
> libraries.
> There's a preliminary guide for conversion at:

> which also has a list of modules to adapt, and their current status:

> Further discussion should be on plt-dev at list.cs.brown.edu , and
> questions or comments can be sent directly to me.
> We hope to continue making Typed Scheme into a useful tool for PLT
> Scheme programmers.
