We look forward to your contributions.  Note, once you have made a couple
of contributions through an existing commiter there is no reason they can't
propose you as a commiter too if you anticipate being involved in FDO
efforts for some time.

I'll try to keep an eye on the commits in the timeline.  I have been using
FDO core and the FDO GDAL provider on 64bit linux for some time now without
problems (after some initial fixing).  So hopefully most of your changes will
be more win64 specific, and in the various other drivers.
