Subject Re: [REQUEST FOR MENTORS] Request for mentors to help bring MetaModel into ASF incubator
Date Thu, 11 Apr 2013 23:03:36 GMT
Hi Henry and Kasper,

I have seen the request for soliciting mentors for MetaModel come up a few
times on the general list and apologize for not stepping up earlier. Part
of my hesitation is that I have not been a mentor to other projects before
and hence am not sure if I can do justice to this request. That said, I am
happy to volunteer myself as a mentor if you don't mind bearing the cost of
my learning curve.

It would be great if more experienced mentors out there can find sometime
to help guide this project to successful incorporation within Apache.

Regards,
Arvind Prabhakar
