Very, very interesting :)
This will make things much easier for us and for you since you have
previous experience with GNOME and Ubuntu should be an easy system to deal
with after all :)

First of all, I'd like to invite you to have a read at this page and join

your emails to get approved since you are a subscriber :)

Also, to became an official member of the team, you need to have a read at:

And of course, if you have any Q, please ask :)

As for how to get started?
Tim, is our Head of Developers and he is away until Wed (2 days to go :D)
and once he is back, he will take it from there :)

At the moment, I'd strongly suggest to bookmark this page:
And whenever you have time, try to read more about us so that you
understand how things work here :)

Please, if you need anything, just ask :)

Also, it would be super great if you could download and install Ubuntu
GNOME 13.10 and play with :)

Thank you for your email, much appreciated and we are looking forward to
see more from you in the near future!
