Subject Re: Followup to VXQuery July 2013 report
Date Fri, 06 Sep 2013 05:22:14 GMT
Ant,

I think that everybody in the VXQuery podling would be very happy to have you on board as
a mentor, even if we manage to release before the next report (which I still think we will).

Please let us know if you would be willing to spend a few cycles helping VXQuery.

Thanks,
Till
