Subject RE: Apache Software Foundation accepted as a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code 2012

Thanks, Uli.
Perhaps this is best presented as a blog post, from which we can publicize/tweet, etc.
Do you --or any of the ComDev folks-- have Roller editing access for blogs.apache.org? Has
anything been sent to announce@apache.org in the past? 
If not, that's OK, I can help with getting the word out, but suggest you consider doing so
for easy status updates, etc.
Chat soon!

Hey Sally,

A prompt note saying that we've been accepted and that this is a great opportunity for us
with
pointers to our ideas list and dev@community for further questions would be nice.

Thanks,

Uli
