    Welcome aboard Chris!

    Just a general note to everyone in regards to commit privs.
    I've been fairly subdued in adding new committers (I really don't
    want to partition the project into 'committers' and 'non-committers'
    from a social point of view, like FreeBSD has), and I'm sure there
    are at least a few more people that really ought to get a commit bit.

    My goal in creating new committers is strictly as a way to spread and
    partition the workload.  Submitter's actually have an easier time of it,
    all they need to do is post to submit@ :-).  Committers on the other
    hand often have to post, discuss, wait a day or three depending, recheck
    their work, manage other people's submissions, and finally mop their
    brow's and actually do the commit!

    Also everyone should keep in mind that you do not have to be a committer
    to get a leaf.dragonflybsd.org account, you need only contribute to
    DragonFly in some way (discussions, submissions, etc).  The only 
    provisio on getting a Leaf account is that you actually need it for
    something DragonFlyish (e.g. like your own machine is just too slow
    and you'd like to run compiles and tests on a faster one, or you are
    throwing a lot of patch sets around and it would be more convenient
    to just put them on Leaf to rendezvous with other developers).
