I'll coordinate the team and I could ensure you that there will be
minimum of direct commands so there is no chance to screw up things.

We expect you to find interesting tasks yourself and collaborate with
other members. The worst result of participation: you'll be bored.

So if you have time, you are interested in JtR and you are comfortable
without direct commands then there are no reasons to not participate.

We are still open for new members.
