Subject Re: [REQUEST FOR MENTORS] Request for mentors to help bring MetaModel into ASF incubator
Date Fri, 12 Apr 2013 19:37:43 GMT
Done - added my name to the mentor list on the proposal.

Question for the broader IPMC: are there any specific concerns about this
proposal that is making it less attractive for other mentors to step up? If
so, it will be great if you could bring them up for discussion to help
educate the project team and maybe even find a way to address them.

Regards,
Arvind
