Hi everyone,

Since my last notice, all but one of the 5 looking for a mentor have found one. 
  (Thanks to mentors shlomi, dmorgan, zezinho and fwang)

We have 3 more apprentice candidates, giving a total of 4 looking for a mentor.

am2605 (Andrew Myers), who has been waiting now for a month.
He is a longtime Fedora, a web developer, interested in packaging related to 
Gnome, Java, Eclipse among others, teaching himself Mageia packaging basics.

cddesjar (Christopher Desjardins),
who has basic .deb and .rpm packaging experience, including doing texworks and 
jags on Mageia for himself.  Would like to maintain these and R-base.

dotmil (Josh King),
who has professional experience with web apps and infrastructure and systems 
level apps, and would like to work on similar packages for Mageia.  Open to 
helping where needed.  Previous .deb packaging experience.

luigiwalser (David Walser),
who was a Mandrake packager (before the current build system), currently 
working as a Linux instructor and sysadmin, interested in importing some 
packages to Mageia that he uses.

You can find more details at:

Mentors, let me know who you take on, and I'll update the tables for you.

Thanks :-)


Anyone else looking for a mentor, let me know so I can add your name as an 
apprentice candidate -- or you can do it yourself.

To find a mentor, it helps to also post to this list (mageia-dev), or hang out 
on IRC at freenode #mageia-mentoring.

Regards :-)
