Subject Re: Want a Mentor
Date Fri, 15 Jan 2016 06:53:39 GMT
Hi,

Definitely I agree with Jain. I'm a newcomer also. Up to this moment I 
was silently crawling Apache project searching for a project I could 
take a part of.
Only added value is that I found many interesting Apache projects that 
I'll use at work, but still don't know how to (in practice) contribute 
to one.

Regards,
Pawel Klos
