I am a programmer and I already understand most of how ADRIFT works internally so I would be able to do the programming work if Campbell is too busy.
The problem with the false antivirus detections with the EXE format seems to be caused by the fact that the ADRIFT 5 XML is stored as a ZIP file inside of the EXE. To fix this you would have to change the format that the data is stored in. Storing the actual data as records (without all of the extra XML stuff the developer uses but the runner doesnt need) would stop these detections, probably make the file smaller, and would certainly make it run faster.
The question about open-sourcing or merging the runner into gargoyle has been coming up every few years since at least 2009, but even if Campbell does not choose to do so it would still be possible to write a new runner that emulates the behavior of the existing code.
