Hi Russell,

A new voice on the mailing list.

Who is the intended audience for this document?
If it includes 'volunteers trying to understand how HOT works' may I/others
also make suggestions to the document?

(I ask because I may have missed a previous thread, and I'm not sure how
open source HOT is.)
