I missed the launchpad notice. I had planned to start attending these over
the summer. I stopped by one as a lurker, but then I didn't see any more
emails. I'll try to start joining you at these.

What kind of janitor work? Perhaps I can help?

How/What/Where on launchpad? I guess I've already notified the mailing
list! I'll follow up with further description of the functionality.

I absolutely agree. I've done quite a bit myself and I think I've been
fairly thorough, but, of course I understand that I need to convince
everyone else of that, and there are always things that get missed. I was
actually going to write some tests for the various functionality I've
implemented, but I've had some trouble understanding the testing framework.
