Yes, don't stop contributing, I like the idea of the installer script, 
it makes cross
compiling so much easier, a thing that is very tricky to setup manually, 
for new users. I only took a brief look, but it (the script) has many 
and the code is quite clean, which is very nice too.

But I understand the concern about the version used, and the naming, and I
guess it would be good to have it explicitly in the website that it is a 
"fan site"
(not sure what the correct term is), and not a project endorsed by the 
Lazarus project. (and of course, the big fat warning when using unstable 

Just my 2 cents :)
