Best of luck to you in the coming days while the community reviews your application. You've been a welcome addition to the efforts of guiding new users in IRC, auditing charms, and pairing over writing amulet tests and auditing.

Most of my time has been spent doing the Charm Audit, writing tests to verify that charms are doing what they claim to do. This often involves diving in to learn the technology the charm provides, and figuring out how to test that technology in an automated way.

So the Tomcat charm will have the official Apache Tomcat icon where the existing charms used the default icon. Once the Tomcat charm passes a review I plan on replacing/deprecating the existing tomcat6 and tomcat7 charms.

As a developer myself I appreciate a complete bug report, so the golden rule applies when I find things that can be improved. I try to create bug reports with detailed descriptions and include steps on how to recreate the issue. Here are a few examples:

> One of the most important responsibilities of a charmer is to welcome the contributor to the community and help them create quality charms that follow charm store policy. Sometimes that means giving the contributor things to improve and fix before they are accepted in the charm store. I have tried to be welcoming and give constructive suggestions in the reviews that are listed below.

Much like the charming process there are opportunities where I could be more effective. Let me know where I can improve and you have my word that I will continue to progress to be the best representative of the Juju community as I can be.
