Hi Grok list,

I would like to participate on the grok sprint and since this is the 
first time I post something to this list, I will give a short 
introduction of myself.

I have been programming python for quite some time now, and started
working at Infrae about a year ago. A lot of my work is Zope related, in
either Plone or (more common) Silva. I have been following the Grok
development for some time now, and recently participated in the
EuroPython Grok sprint.
I'm really excited about the Grok project and would love to do some work
with it. I work with Martijn at Infrae, and he thought there should be
plenty of work for me to do during the sprint. I would like to do some 
work on the Admin UI.

Aroldo: I'll mail you offlist about the hotel reservations.
