Hi Marcel,

The code awards list that Jaliya forwarded your mail to is an internal 
ASF list for managing our engagement with Google Summer of Code.

The public list for discussion of our mentoring programme is 
dev@community.apache.org, I've copied this mail to that list).

Our mentoring programme is not fully operational at this time, we intend 
to launch it once the Google Summer of Code is underway (a few months yet).

However, you can find out more information about the programme and how 
we imagine it will work at 
http://community.apache.org/mentoringprogramme.html

You'll see you've taken the first step already with this mail.

Take a look at the documentation and ask any further questions on the 
dev@community.apache.org mailing list (subscribe frist with a mail to 
dev-subscribe@community.apache.org

We're about to get very busy with student selection for GSoC, once the 
big rush is out of the way we'll come back to your case. In the meantime 
your best action is to get on the Axis mailing lists and discuss your 
project proposal with the team there.

Ross
