That is good to know :)

You are right. I will update my page. Sorry for confusion. I wrote that 3-4
days ago because at that time, I had no idea what team shall I apply for?
now, I know so I will update it :) thanks for the reminder :)

Do not worry about that, I will definitely be careful.

If you mean there are girls/ladies/women with the team, I'm sorry if I used
the wrong word :)

1- Testing
2- Communications (Social Networks) /Spread the word
3- Help with general discussion over the mailing list, etc.

As of now, these are the areas I'm thinking about. If things will go well
with Xubuntu, I might increase that but no promises here. I'd prefer to
start with these 3 areas first and see how things will develop. How about

Thank you once more for taking the time to read and reply my emails :)
