Being a member of multiple teams in itself is not a problem at all.

Asking to join multiple teams at a time and at the same time writing 
you're not sure if you want to join any of those teams on your wikipage 
on the other hand easily leaves people doubting your intentions.

Since you've said you want to scale down your involvement in hours, I 
would also like you to ask yourself if joining two teams simultaneously 
will help you with that goal.

I'm pretty sure Elfy referred us all not being "guys"...

As I've said, it's a good idea to get to know the team and the way we 
work first.

However, I do agree with Elfy as well. Rather than looking in the past 
and judging people by their previous achievements, the Xubuntu team is 
here to look into the future. In practice, seeing where you come from is 
fine but it is more important to hear how you think you could help 
Xubuntu (no rush with this though).
