Hey Roman
The mentor activity for Aurora has occurred mostly on the private@ list and
on irc regarding more process oriented questions than anything else due to
a lot of previous involvement by new committers with Apache Mesos in some
form or another. Overall project is off to a great start and no current
issues as Justin mentioned.
