Subject Re: [vote] new committer

Thanks David, and everybody who voted for me! This is my first 
committership within the Apache community, and I'm really proud to be 
part of the Jetspeed team now.

Let me introduce myself a little bit to the people who don't know me. I 
am thirty years of age, married (no kids.. yet :) ) and live in 
Amsterdam, the capital of The Netherlands. I am working at a Dutch 
company called Hippo, also located in Amsterdam, a company that mainly 
provides Enterprise Content Management solutions. I've been working 
there since June 2004, fresh out of university where I studied Computer 
Science. In the first few years I built a lot of websites/intranets 
based on another Apache project, Cocoon, and was a part of the HippoCMS 
development team. Since November 2006 I became involved in the 
development of portal web applications based on Jetspeed. The main 
reason for that is a certain guy who came to work for us around that 
time ;) Somewhere from about June 2007 I became more active in the 
community, because I was getting more and more enthusiastic about the 
project, and wanted to contribute instead of merely being a consumer.

I look forward to working with all of you guys, and hope that together 
we can make Jetspeed even better than it already is.


PS. Vivek, congratulations as well!
