Subject Re: Develop a video course on Gluon with Packt
Date Tue, 16 Oct 2018 12:15:56 GMT
Hello Mandar,

I think there is a misunderstanding. We as a project are always happy to be
available to help with questions, but this sounds like you are trying to
hire somebody as main author - this is slightly out of scope for our email
list. If somebody is interested to be the main author, they will get in
touch with you.

I personally am just a representative of the project, but I don't have the
time nor the possibilities to help you to such an extent.

If you have any specific questions, we are happy to assist you again.

Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Best regards,
Marco
