Your're most welcome to join us, Ross. I've accepted you for the
contributors team. 
The idea of that team was that contributors who yet have not proved
themselves enough to join our -dev team could collaborate on sources
that -contributors own.
Also, we who are in the -dev team can help sort out problems in
ubuntustudio-contributor sources as we have access.

We've gone past feature freeze, which means additional uploads either
are feature freeze exceptions or bug fixes.
So, from this point onwards, to release time, we mostly do testing and
bug fixing.

Come by our IRC channel sometime, if you want. #ubuntustudio-devel at
