Thanks to everyone who responded to my recent call for help with kernel 
bug-squashing. I replied to a number of emails and was pleasantly 
surprised to see a lot of people actually following through. Probably to 
the point where some people are a little discouraged or at loose ends 
because there aren't immediately enough bugs to go around... (the bug 
list is currently the smallest I have seen it in a long time, but more 
will come!)

I am going to start recruiting the new contributors to "official" Gentoo 
Developer status, which will provide proper recognition for your work, 
access to directly contribute to genpatches, and so on.

I will probably start with the most active new contributors in no 
particular order. I just wanted to make sure that everyone is aware that 
all contributions, even only occasional ones, are very much appreciated, 
and I will (in time) recruit anyone who is prepared and able to 
contribute even on an occasional basis. Anyone is welcome to remind or 
ask me about this and I'll give an honest answer.

The Gentoo recruitment process is a bit long and drawn out, so this 
needs to be done one or two people at a time. I have travel plans 
starting next month so will become much less active until mid-April, so 
my first priority is to make one or two more active people be in a 
position less dependent on myself. But I will continue on the recruiting 
as long as there are enthusiastic people to recruit, as time allows.

Thanks for your patience!
