Cool! I'm already rejoicing at the idea of having you around. Welcome.

Do you intend to be mainly in

1) "pure database" stuff (drivers, SQL parsing and generation, ...)

or also dig into

2) stuff more around it, like e.g. the report builder and the forms

There is certainly a need for more manpower in number 1 (there is
always a need for more...), but number 2 has IMHO some of the most
urgent / important matters open. And maybe more importantly, I'm
better at number 1 than number 2, so the need is more desperate.
