Count me in as well!

I only did some spot fixes the last round, but at least I have some familiarity 
with what happened. I don't have any particular expertise but I'm happy to help 
coordinate overall, test, and generally do some cat herding.

And now that I have commit access I hope I can really help move things through 
with review and pushing ready patches. Unfortunately had some other stuff come 
up for the last few months since I got access, but I should have more time 
starting in a week or so.

On that front, I think looking through relevant core-updates patches (the Mesa 
ones in particular, for me) is a good first step for review and I'll try 
building on my end to see how far I get.

I need to catch up on the thread about feature branches and I'm looking forward 
to that as well. It has something that I have long wanted and will gladly help 
in that transition and doing what I can to make that go smoothly.
