Subject: [gentoo-project] New Developer: James "chewi" Le Cuirot
Date: Fri, 27 Feb 2015 17:53:41
Good evening everyone,

It's my pleasure to announce a new developer. James "chewi" Le Cuirot is
joining us from Edinburgh, United Kingdom. He is another longtime user
who finally turned into a dev. He will be assisting the Java team.

Here is how he describes himself:

"Born and raised in "old" Jersey, Channel Islands. Married with one
daughter and now live in Edinburgh, Scotland. Work as a Senior
Software Engineer for a business process automation firm that
specialises in VoIP and SMS. Enjoy rocking out to metal, cooking,
and the odd video game.

Nicknamed Chewbacca at school for being rather hairy. Figured this was
quite a cool name so it stuck and eventually got shortened. Ironically
somewhat bald on top these days but feel I have earned the name in my
own right after all these years. "

Please give him a warm welcome!
