Nice to have you here, Matt.

You might take a read at some of the material up on our Podling
website [1]. It has information about the project, decision making,
how to work with the website, source control, mailing lists, wikis,
etc.  We have more stuff which needs to be migrated as well.  You can
see a fuller plan on the wiki [2]

Your support and QA skills would certainly valued on this project. Are
you signed up for the ooo-users list as well [3]?
