Hi Satwantjit,

If I had introduced myself, I would have done it in similar fashion
too (as we do similarly in other mailing lists too eg: BRL-CAD). Since
we are newbies we are inexperienced and we cannot at once decide what
we need to contribute in without knowing what exactly it is. But yes
we need to do some homework before asking that's what I have learnt
from this uber fruitful discussion.

And yes it would be cool if you write a blog post for the newbies like
"DOs and DONT DOs before introducing in mailing lists." ;-)

P.S. Don't be disgruntled with the responses but inspired as all are
willing to help but the other way. ;-) Let's contribute as we have a
number of suggested resources!
