Hi Leslie,

Thanks for all your comments. A couple replies inlined below:

Ok, I've added this.

We actually have a fair amount of documentation, so linking to it
won't be a problem. We'll comb through the ideas list (soon) to add
the skillsets required for each project.

I'm on the TOS mailing list, so I'll make sure I forward all relevant
posts to everyone else in the OpenNebula team. I would really like to
attend the IRC meeting but, unfortunately (or fortunately, depending
on how you look at it), I will be at ICPC
(http://icpc.baylor.edu/icpc) all that week, except April 24th.
Anyway, I'll bring this up when we start discussing the meeting time
on the TOS mailing list (if I can't make it, one of the other
OpenNebula developers will probably be able to attend).
