I got my first patch accepted into Spring today, a small fix for the FreeMarker view class. It'll be present in 2.0.1. Very fast response from the core team (Jürgen), impressive!
I've also worked a little on the CSS of this blog. I really think serif fonts are more readable in the long run. Gotta do something about that awful header though. This was the only Blogger template I could find that spanned the full width of the page, so I figured I'd start from there and customize it later on.
