Hi all -
Looking forward to working with all of you! As Joan mentioned, my specialty
is project management and I am excited to be able to help with planning and
tracking the next release.

Please review the board and let us know which items you are able to take on
for 3.0 (please assign issues to yourself to claim them). I will check in
in a few weeks to see if there are any questions and we'll start tagging
the 3.0 committed content and discuss timelines.

Thanks!

Deni
