Hey guys,
We discussed this a few and things went a little by the wayside due to
me not having internet at home. So I'd like to take this opportunity
to welcome Francois and Allan aboard as new fancy developers.

I *think* I got everyone setup properly - it's been a while since I
added a new dev.

So here's a quick-and-dirty guide for you two:

First and foremost, read this:

Now, the next thing we need to do is start maintaining packages. Yay!

Go to https://dev.archlinux.org/devel and use the password you should
have gotten from me.
This is the "dashboard" that contains a whole mess of info for
maintainers. Todo lists for packages, out of date packages, and
quicklinks for all the lists.

When you're on the dev site (dev.archlinux.org) you can search for
packages and an "adopt this package" button should show up. You'll
have to go through and do this for the packages you want AND new
packages you add.

A note on adding packages: the web interface is updated at 30 minute
intervals, so when you add a new package to the repo, it may take a
bit to show up.

Personal Info: Take a look at your entries here
http://archlinux.org/developers/ If you want anything added/change,
send me an email, and I'll change it for ya.

I think I covered everything. If anyone else has something to add, go ahead.

Cheers, and welcome guys!
