Sorry to bother you all, but I'm interested in contributing to Avro, and 
am seeking a little more information about the state of the project. Are 
any of you interested in advising me on areas which might be accessible 
to a newcomer? If not, please redirect me towards another resource.

Thanks,
Dane VanDyck
