As a relative newcomer, I can say that I think you'll find the team to
be very supportive and friendly.
This is encouraging :) This group indeed seems to be very organized ( like
the howtos, directions) and very collaborative.
If you haven't already, you should also link up with the Translation
Project. It's great when someone has good language skills in
and another language (I wish I did).
I did not link to the translations project. Will certainly do that.
