Hi,
I've been a lurker on this list ever since Wave came to Apache. I've been
following it since the sandbox days and have been interested the whole way.
Once it went open source I found I couldn't really contribute as java isn't
really my forte. This looks like a perfect opportunity though and i'll glad
jump in and help out by taking up release manager. I've got not a clue what
it involves but i'm a pretty quick learner.

Thanks
Angus Turner
