Here here!  Is there a place where PAWB's can sign up?

I'm signed up for the -internals lists mainly as an educational 
experience.  It should be fascinating to see how a system as complex as 
Perl 6 gets developed, even if I'm unable, through lack of skill, to 
directly contribute.  My hope is that if I'm not able to contribute to Perl 
6, then I should have learned enough to be able to contribute to Perl 6.1 
(or Perl 7, whichever is next).
