(16:24:25) lizm: Introducing yourself and your skills to the mailing list is always appreciated
(16:24:30) Andreas__: you'll be able to send in your ideas to the wiki, first without any public access
(16:24:50) phaoUNTOtom: Well, I can say I am no programmer,
(16:24:51) Andreas__: like Christoph said, but more details are comming out soon
(16:24:59) Andreas__: nice, welcome! ;-)
(16:25:24) phaoUNTOtom: I was going to see where you needed help and then ask myself if I can contribute in that area
(16:25:34) lizm: Good that you are not a programmer:-) We love them but have to supplement them with additional knowledge in user experience
(16:25:45) phaoUNTOtom: :-)
(16:26:31) phaoUNTOtom: That's all I was going to ask
(16:26:39) lizm: Are you a "user" of OOo? Then you surely have some experience and can share it.
(16:27:15) lizm: Of course that is very general. Details are always being discussed on the mailing lists, so tune in and see if something fits your skills
(16:27:18) phaoUNTOtom: Yes, I have helped others in the user forums.
(16:27:34) lizm: Very good. You probably know more than me ;-)
(16:27:58) lizm: And knowing where other users have trouble is always good to keep the user perspective
(16:28:09) phaoUNTOtom: :-)  It is my way of "paying back" for the free office suite
(16:28:41) lizm: You are wonderful! Thx! Like I said, keep an eye on the mailing lists and be sure to jump in whenever you feel you can. That is how it works ;-)
(16:28:54) phaoUNTOtom: OK
(16:29:12) lizm: Great to have you aboard.
(16:29:37) mdamboldt: So I asume thats all for todays meeting?
(16:29:51) Andreas__: I am done for today
