IMO, the goal of the active FOP committers (not to mention the rest of

In any case, suffice it to say that we welcome new blood in here. Just 
be certain you try to follow the Contributors Tech Guide[1].

If you intend to make some lasting contributions (which we hope will be 
the case :-D), please consider filling out the CLA[2] now, so that we 
can accept and apply your PATCHes upon receipt. Otherwise, we may have 
to wait for you to fill it out before we can accept your 1st 
significant PATCH... Oh, and... welcome to the club!
