I think all of this makes perfect sense, and I'm willing to commit to at
least the next 2 years.  I'm glad to hear there will be some help initially,
as I know I will need some spinup time/help.  I'm currently out of town and
away from my macbook pro, but when I get back I'll try to set up a build
environment on it.  In the mean time I'll work on setting up a build
environment on my windows machine as practice.

I look forward to working more closely with everyone.  It's about time I
started giving back!
