And another "Welcome Aboard" to Dusty. He's going to be taking over
the django development. Dusty, the above text applies to you as well,
as you may want to learn the process a bit so you know how we work.

To the other people who said they wanted to help out with django
development, I'd suggest you get in contact with Dusty, as I'd like
him to help spear-head the development here, but I don't think he's
averse to team members 8)

Dusty, we can talk in private regarding some of the file locations and
things like that.

Cheers, and welcome!
