Subject Re: Bluesky calls for a new mentor!
Date Thu, 30 Jun 2011 03:18:33 GMT
We really appreciate both of your suggestions on Bluesky's development in

We think that we are supposed to finish code release work of the 4th version
in the end of July.Due to the effective work we really need a experienced
mentor to guide our release. In addition, there are about 8-9 developers to
do the release work, some of whom are green hands to release code in ASF
owing to change of team members.We consider that it is important if there is
a disscussion about how to fast acquire this guide instructions.

By the way, we have been developing the bluesky project. After the release
work of 4th version. We would like to discuss the deployment of the 5th
version including IPTV function and so on. We appreciate collaboraters in
ASF to give us some suggestions about mobile terminal and IPTV.
