Hi Stephen and Benjamin

Welcome onboard :-)
We are always glad to see new people contributing!
If you are looking for somewhere to start I would recommend getting the
latest code from gitlab startup OpenLP, click around and make sure stuff
works as expected. If it doesn't try to fix it :)
Going through our bug tracker is also a good starting point. I'd recommend
joining us on IRC in #openlp on freenode.net.

Stephen, if you or John would make a merge request for the Planning Center
plugin it would be great to start the review process to get it merged as
soon as possible.

Best regards,
Tomas (tgc)
