Call for assistance

Matthias, a Pony core team member, writes:

We would kindly ask everybody to help us with a particular blindspot in our existing test suites for ponyc: interacting with the process environment (reading from stdin, writing to stdout/stderr, environment variables, cli arguments, signal handling …).

We set up a github issue to track and discuss ideas: If you would like to help, add a comment on the issue and/or join our discussion on zulip.

Any kind of help is very much appreciated.
