While I did concentrate on language improvements, I did do a fair share 
of deep reviews, helping patches move into a Drupalish direction, eg. 
the batch API, actions, the jQuery 1.1.2 update, the file API, update 
module, quite a few theme improvements and so on...

I hope to get recorded as a language support advocate but at the same 
time, I am not comfortable being locked into this place only ;)
