Hi Jim,

2011/6/4 Jim Jagielski <jim@jagunet.com>

Hello!

I have also just subscribed to both discuss@ and steering-discuss@ in
hopes that if there are questions here regarding OOo, LOo, TDF and the ASF,
I can respond. I'm also here to also ask that if you feel more comfortable
emailing me directly, that is fine as well.

I'm lurking too...
... but if you want a measured response, I'd like to point you in
Jim's direction...

Be sure that we are very honored with your presence here.
I'm sure we'll do many good stuff together.


Thanks, but "honored" is for sure too strong a word :)

:-)

I'm an Apache Member too but (unlike Jim) I can't get away without
introduction[1][2][3][4]

I would also like to announce I have an agenda: I'm a big fan of
LibreOffice and think it capable of successfully disrupting the
market. I'd like to try to open some minds (and maybe change some
attitudes) here with the aim of helping to accelerate this process.

I've spent too long in the past arguing about FOSS ideology in the
past and these days would rather be coding. I hope all we share a
community orientation (though we may argue about the meaning of
freedom). I will try to avoid being drawing into ideological
arguments. Please help me to do :-)

I expect to jump in a little bit more actively with the hope of
correcting misunderstandings early

I speak for no one but myself

Would this all be okay with everyone?

FWIW I've never been paid to code FOSS and currently my life today
revolves around recovering from a serious injury (before you ask, it's
much improved allowing me to do stuff like this :-)
