Yep, I haven't contributed any code yet. I've used the tool though
(and became interested in it after the board elections).

That being said, I'm planning to be around, not go anywhere, help
VOTE on releases, test them out, and if I get the time/interest, 
contribute to the code base.

I'd say that qualifies me just as much as if I'd had 50+ SVN commits
to it. Code != the only contribution.

My interest in being part of this project is that we at the ASF should
be able to release our voter tool code and share it with others who
are asking for it. I haven't directly developed any of the code, but I
also kind of see myself in this role as a 3rd binding VOTE when needed
and someone with the cycles/interest to make sure we push forward,
are operating in the Apache way, and are releasing the software
for the benefit of others.
