Simon and I were able too meet Vincent Hennebert in person in Amsterdam last week. He has already made an impression with his excellent work for the GSoC. He's a very nice and intelligent guy, eager to learn and to work on FOP. Another guy who's not afraid to jump into the depths of the layout engine.
Since the GSoC he has found a job at Anyware (http://www.anyware-tech.com), a French company which does a lot of Cocoon stuff. There, he has the opportunity to work around 50% on FOP sponsored by the same customer that enabled me to invest so much time into FOP over the last two years. I'd like to propose Vincent as an XML Graphics committer (FOP working set). I believe he will be a good addition to our work force. Votes only on general@ please. +1 from me. Jeremias Maerki
