Georg, the "have" is referring to the word used by Michael, as in:

"If you're interesting in helping, the Mailman project would love to
-own- you."

with a (perfectly natural) reaction of, "hey, I'm willing to contribute
but -not- to take on this big task all by myself!"

Basically its much ado about nothing, a language misunderstanding by
all.  Let's move on.
