Hi Andreas,

Sorry, maybe I wasn't clear, I am an ASF committer... Just not to
PDFBox.. . I do have domain expertise being a full-time FOP developer
and having dealt with PDFs and fonts quite a bit. Should I pop an
email to dev-community to see if it's ok? It seems like such a waste
to have an interested applicant but no mentor...
