Great to see some development happening. Good luck with getting the team
started, and please say if the rest of us can help you.
As Rubén says, the last weekend of March is the Ubuntu Global Jam, and I
would encourage you to do something there if possible. The idea of the jam
is to get together and work on Ubuntu through bug triaging, translations,
packaging, or similar, but just getting together to get a beer or anything
at all, can be a great way to build a team, so I will highly encourage that
