Hi everybody,

Now that I'm less implicated in daily life of glob2, but that I retain a 
strong interest in it and I'm decided to contribute when I have time (on the 
script or other issues), I've a better view of the external perception of 
glob2 community. I think one of the reason why we have so few contributors is 
that this community seems opaque from the outside. Mails are long, lacks 
summary, and often encompass several subject.

To improve the situation, I suggest the followings actions:

Have a nice day,
