Subject Re: Invitation: Apply to be a Mentoring Organization for GCI
Date Wed, 27 Oct 2010 08:50:56 GMT
Hi there,

I would like to fill the form today. Anyway Its still not quite clear
to me what the url of the "idea" page would be. I think we used
wiki.apache.org before and then switched (?) to jira ?

In the form its called:
"Please provide a link to your task ideas page. This is much like the
ideas page for Google Summer of Code but should include tasks in all
of the 8 categories sorted by difficulty level."

So if the things are managed by the projects itself what should I add there ?

Bye,
Norman
