I would like to. I already tested weston and it works fine so far in the sense
of drawing fancy rotating things, simulated smoke and flowers - the usual things
you would expect from a window manager. However I miss the following pieces for
a productive working environment:

* dwm
* browser (surf)
* st (there is a patchset, which I'll try to adapt to my tree soon)

If I can, I would like to help. Where is the code hosted? I also found swc[0]
written by the same guy who wrote the st port to wayland. However I feel it is
not really as simple as it claims to be.

I would be fine with this.
