25 Thank you everyone for the welcoming messages! It's nice to see a few
26 fellow physicists around here.
28 Also, a big thank you to Ruud (redlizard), Benda (heroxbd), Fabian
29 (grobian), and Markos (hwoarang) for mentoring and recruiting me.
31 Despite recent discussions about the recruiting process and how some
32 people think it should be changed, I have to say that for me it was very
33 enjoyable to go through the process and it certainly feels great to
34 finally be a part of Gentoo.
36 Cheers,
