Subject Re: Call to action – Mahout needs your help

Regarding GSOC, my school has always had *lots* of students accepted
(we were second in 2012 and over the past 5 years [1]).
I'm involved in an open-source organization at school and we can get
in touch with lots of students.

If you guys decide to participate in GSOC this year, I'd be happy to
spread the word and maybe even have a presentation about Mahout at
school. Also, since I'm squarely on the student side (doing my senior
project with Ted on Mahout) I think I have a good grasp of what the
problems are, especially for a beginner student.

And, if you do pick someone, I could help them part-time (especially
if they're from my school, you know, timezone and language help)
. Of course, I wouldn't really want to be the main mentor since I'm
still really new and not a committer yet. :)
