A very warm welcome from my side. I'm subscribed to the 
general at incubator list too, but just lurk (and think ;) for the moment.

To present myself a bit, I'm a member of the Steering Committee, a 
member of the Membership Committee and the liaison for TDF at SPI. I'm 
doing the French localization, I'm also working on other various tasks 
and areas on the project.
I was in the OOo community since the creation of the project, member of 
the CC representing the NLC, lead of the FR project, I represented the 
OOo community before the AB.

As you are on the most active lists of our project, don't hesitate to 
ask too if you have any question on concerns. Either directly to me or 
on any lists.

Welcome again and thanks a lot for coming to visit us on our project, it 
is highly appreciated.

Kind regards
Founding member of The Document Foundation
