Cool, thanks!

The Jackrabbit PMC has discussed this already, and it seems like
everyone would be happy to have you as a committer. However, normally
we require some code-level interaction, i.e. patches, with an existing
committer before nominating someone for committership. Dominique's
import of the Chemistry codebase counts as one such interaction and
having you submit one or two patches against the current state of the
code should be enough to get you in as a committer.

PS. We also discussed introducing a "sandbox committer" concept for
cases like this with a lower entry bar than standard committership,
but we didn't reach consensus on that so for now we're operating under
the above-mentioned standard path to committership.
