After such a motivating mail, I'd like to take the opportunity to
thank you all for making ESME a reality and trusting me to be a part
of it. I think I'm the only one who hasn't seen anyone of the team in
person, and I owe this in a significant part to micro-messaging. I
believe in ESME as born out of the desire to take the best from
micro-messaging and I believe in this team, because I watched it grow
with the unbiased eye of an outsider. ESME has had its ups and downs,
but I also share David's opinion that we're at the start of something

I'd mostly like to take part of internal message routing- that's what
also one of the motivators to get serious about contributing to ESME.
I've also done some research and steps on ESME REST API and
compatibility with Twitter. If noone objects, I'd like to take
responsibility for these for now.

Since there are more tasks than committers right now, I'm also
interested in Internal APIs and plugin mechanism and maybe information
pools and access control, if time permits.

All the best,
