if this is the deal on offer, then i think it'd sell ;-)

most lists have lots of developers who have to grudgingly break away
from the code to help new contributors

i have a general interested in messaging and a strong intersection
with the analytics stuff that Emse may do one day (which links into
Hama, James, Hadoop). i should have a little more time from next week.
i'm not promising that i'll have a long term commitment and have a lot
of other projects that are going to take my time but maybe just a
little more development help would be useful to cover the slow period
into the summer.

i'll try to spread the word a little. i'll be at ApacheConEU. the
FastFeather track is a good way to attract interest within Apache -
the crowds are small but influential. i think we could pull together a
talk which either myself or Bertrand could give.
