Thank you very much all of you, it is a big honor for me to be now
official part of the great cocoon community.

To introduce myself to the community:
I am a German freelancer living in Spain and started to use cocoon back
in 2002 when I was working for a company in Paderborn while I studied
(Carsten will know the town ;)). I used it to generate reports of some
telemarketing databases that I programmed this days.

As well in this days I got in contact with the former version of Apache
Lenya, was able to contribute to the project and got elected as
committer. Then I entered the incubator with Lenya in 2003 and became
part of the great Apache community. 

A year later I started with Forrest and since then I am using the three
projects for my customer projects. Lately I have finished a high traffic
web page for the regional government based on cocoon 2.2 and I am exited
to keep on working with cocoon in the future (let us see when I can have
my first "Corona" ;)).
