Subject Karma for incubator wiki
Date Wed, 14 Nov 2012 15:13:21 GMT
Could someone please grant me karma to edit the incubator wiki? I'd like 
to add my name to a proposal. My wiki username is 'AndrewHart'. 
Incidentally, it looks like Davide Palmisano (see below) is in the same 
situation.

Thanks very much for your help!

Andrew.
