Hi all

Svetlana- your worry about outreach actually touched me, I've been in 
this list for a couple of years yet I never seem to make the time to 
participate or actually start doing some community work. Makes me feel 
bad, because I love Ubuntu and open source and since I'm using both I 
should be giving something back.
I'm full of admiration at how you guys work and make things happen, and 
I think it's time for me to get my act together and participate.

Jasna- I think the mentoring idea for an Ubuntu project is excellent as 
you suggest it.

I'm not a programmer but I can do a lot of other things, I am after all 
a woman in the IT field at an (*almost*) senior level, so here I am, 
count me in!
