SEUL-Leaders: bill tor - joining development leaders

this is some info i got from bill tor, who inquired about joining the
leadership team a little while ago.
i think he can be in charge of the admin tools, ui, or installer group
equally well.  he mentions a preference for ui on installer.

	Yes. I have written code in C and Fortran for real.
	I played with several other languages.
	I have written perl and shel scripts.
	Specifically I have written device drivers, and unix deamons.

	I have put together a "distribution" of linux for my sister. I started
	with a bare-bones Slackware distribution, added the X front end, internet
	connectivity, and configured fvwm, to be require very little intelligence
	to run. I configured a single default user for her to use.
	The entire entire internet connectivity part was chrooted in its own file
	system. I planned to do the same with all other packages I was to install but 
	didn't need to install anything.
	She uses it as the fabled network computer.

	UI, and installation.

	I have no idea. My schedules yo-yo's way to much. 10 hr/wk sounds okey
	but the variance either way is probably very wide.

I haven't added my home account to the list yet, but I plan to be following
the mail list from the account starsend@interlog.com.
