Hi Ross,

The Wookie proposal has my high interest, especially from the bridging POV between W3C Widgets
and Google Gadgets.
Furthermore, I'm involved in Apache Portals (committer & PMC) and integrating these APIs
and features into a portal server (e.g. Apache 
Jetspeed-2) is very much on our short list.
So I'd like to help with mentoring Wookie through the incubator as much as possible.

Note: while I'm an ASF Member, I'm not (yet) a Incubator PMC member, which I understand is
required for this.
