Subject Re: ASF Application for Google Season of Docs 2019
Date Tue, 02 Apr 2019 21:57:20 GMT
Hi Sharan,

We plan to prepare ideas list for at least 2 Apache projects, in particular
for Airflow, Beam and possibly Spark. I am sure there are other projects
that would like to participate, therefore I’m wondering whether 2 tech
writers will be enough? Can we ask for more?

I’m happy to chat further to figure out what’s the best course of action.
