we're all one community here: please don't feel constrained to work in
just one little box. 

if you want to work on one of the components here you haven't worked on
before, just post a hello (as phil did) and then dive in.  the worst
that can happen is a -1 :)

remember to add yourself to the list of committers for that component.

if you're embarking on a major rewrite (rather than just bug fixes),
consider either starting work on a branch or taking a tag.
