Subject Re: ASF for Google Code-In
Date Mon, 31 Oct 2016 22:53:08 GMT
Hi!

thanks for the positive feedback. As Mark said -- time is tight
so please respond to the following ASAP.

I went through the registration process on behalf of ASF and
two statements stood out:
   1. Google is asking whether we'd be comfortable supplying
    ~200 small'ish tasks. I think we are.

    2. There's an Organization Agreement that I'm expected to click
    through. I'm attaching it bellow. It looks pretty bare bones to me,
    but if anything jumps at you -- please let me know ASAP.

    3. They don't allow for aliases -- and are asking for Google account.
    I'm volunteering my own.

All in all, I plan to complete the submission in 48 hours.

Thanks,
Roman.
