>  - he's a member of the html5lib project:
>    http://code.google.com/p/html5lib/ and developed the initial
>    port of html5lib to the Ruby programming language
>  - he was very closely involved with the specification for the
>    Atom syndication format (RFC 4287) from pretty much the very
>    earliest days of its (pre)development
>  - he is a Director and Vice President of the Apache Software
>    Foundation, and former chairman of the Apache Jakarta project,
>    and has made code contributions to a number of the Apache
>    Software Foundation's open-source software projects
> I'm very happy that we've been able to get Sam on in a leadership
> role with the group, and I'm looking forward to working closely
> with him and Chris both after he starts in that role on January 5.
> I'll hope you'll join me in extending a very warm welcome to him.
