Subject Re: Encouraging More Women to Participate on Apache Projects?
Date Sun, 22 May 2016 08:44:02 GMT
Thanks everyone for the feedback.

Is it possible for me to get some space (eg a page etc on the Comdev 
wiki) to put together these initial ideas and the action points? I'm 
also thinking of using it to help develop the ideas further and to track 
the actions in progress.
