Thanks, DougM. 

There are links to the list and IRC channel. Please select "let us know
<http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/WPD:Editors_Guide/step_2_communicate_with_
the_online_community> " and you'll see it's our communication page that
tells the user to sign up for the IRC and join the email list and so on.

There are currently reporting pages in project.* as well as your very own
dashboard with bugs and tasks assigned to you. Although you might not have
any assigned to you current, it should soon! ;-)

First, Julee, as a targeted recipient, I want to say thanks for this.  It's
a great communication.

There is so much right about this, I don't plan to list any of it, but feel
free to ask questions.

There were two really minor items that caught my attention:

There's no link to the IRC or the group e-mail, so the requested feedback
channels aren't readily available from the note.

The projects intro says we can get a high-level view of what's going on (and
report bugs and pull tasks), but that's sometime in the very near future,
but not today, as far as I know.

I love that you invited people who can help with the LAMP stack, on top of
what's been in the past events..

Your big fan,
DougM
