Subject RE: Get involved on Harmony

I can't speak for our fearless leader (namely, Geir Magnusson, Jr.,
the list moderator), but I can say that if you simply jump in and
join this list, you will surely find something that either (1) interests
you, or (2) you know something about, or (3) both.

We need people who _do_ know something about a topic as well as people
who do _not_ know.  For example, myself.  I have worked with Java for a
good while, and I have some good experience in Unix, Windows, and
real-time systems.  Therefore, I felt I could write a JVM for this
project.  However, I do _not_ know anything about Java memory allocation
and de-allocation (known as "garbage collection") systems, as is evident
from recent list postings.  However, several other people do.  Their
experience will fill in my gap and I will learn something along the way.

We encourage your participation at whatever level you would like to
contribute.  Keep reading and you will find your niche!

Best regards,

Dan Lydick
