As Spider_Al said we've been thinking about the mod. In the end there aren't that many things that need tweaking. We could do with changes to blocking and saber damage at first and then continue from there. Of course we will need the SDK but at least we can talk about the changes while waiting for it to come out.
All who are interested could mail me: email@example.com
We have an irc channel and as soon as I can set it up, a forum as well.
