Thanks for the warm welcome! Looks like I've been tasked with writing up
docs for some newer features like <picture> and others.

I will try to contribute as many one sentence summaries as I can though to

Since I'm not as familiar with the issue tracker, I will pass on the Monday

My stuff seems to fall outside of the Wed crew so it doesn't look like I
should add my status to that. Is it sufficient to just post to the mailing
list and say that I'll be working on <picture>, then check out pages as I
work on them? If so, I'll be working on <picture> first :)
