Thanks, Ross.

I'd like to explore this further with you. When do you leave the country?

Chat soon,
Sally

Sally we could weave this into the diversity angle, as a reminder I intend to use the state
of the feather to acknowledge that we have mostly failed to move the needle on diversity in
our community, that very little works (GSoC is a good example of something that does work),
accept we don’t have significant cash resources to make a big difference and therefore we
have invited TEALs to present, organize a BOF and have a table in the expo area. TEALs help
get people like our vast army of volunteers into high schools to help improve CS education.
My hope is that by supporting activities like this we can have a small impact on the quality
and breadth of CS education for those coming to us as contributors in later years.

What do you think? If this works for you I could link you to the TEALs people to help with
content for a blog.

Oh, and I will be at ApacheCon.

Hi Sally,

I am sure Ross and few others from ComDev will also be there at ApacheCon and should be able
to provide details on GSoC at ASF. I will be there as well and also have a talk accepted on
the same topic - http://sched.co/2P6f <http://sched.co/2P6f> 

Please let me know if you would like to promote anything specific on GSoC, I will be happy
to help and will appreciate your efforts. 

Suresh
