Hi, Dave–

Welcome to the project!

You should join the next community telcon, if you can, so you can meet 
some of the Usual Suspects. We meet on Tuesdays at 10am PT; you'll see 
the agenda sent out on Monday, with the contact info.

You should also make sure to touch base with Eliot Graff, who is also in 
the Seattle area, and who is helping lead the review of our JavaScript docs.

I look forward to working with you.
