now now psa, you can't volunteer for everything. There will be no jobs 
left the other members involved in the Jabber Software Foundation. You 
need to take a step back and let others volunteer. (Like me.) And then 
if no volunteers come forward, you can then start kicking some ass and 
guilt people into being on a committe :) So yeah, I volunteer to be on a 
committee, but I do not have much experience with marketing-droid speak.
