Welcome to the team!

I'm also interested in the idea of some sort of new-user-greeter to help
people find relevant support resources, but I'm yet to hit on a decent
implementation. The original was a summer of code project [1], but I
wasn't a fan so I wrote my own [2] [3]. That sucked too.

I'd be interested to hear what ideas you've had on this. It'd be nice to
finally release something to address this issue.
