I like the idea of a public hack where everyone contributes. However, some sort of website that accepts pull requests for new features *might* be a good idea, so that we can view different changes and stuff that everyone contributes in an organized manner. We also need a set in stone storyline/characters so that we don't have people going all over the place with stuff.
As for support, I'll nominate mehself as an ASM Hacker. As long as it isn't any insane ASM mods I'm OK. (That's Jambo51's job. )
