Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Provisionr join the Apache Incubator
Date Thu, 28 Feb 2013 18:52:00 GMT
Anyone else interested to join?

We are still looking for mentors / initial contributor. If you are working
with OSGi, Karaf, Activiti,
Cloud APIs or Puppet it would be great to have you on-board as a mentor or
contributor.

I am at ApacheCon in Portland - feel free to get in touch if you want to
know more.
