Hi Shivani,

I missed putting up my details as mentor on our OPW page, sorry.
I've added this information now.

Please don't worry too much about the small contribution deadline,
which officially is next Monday. We joined the OPW program rather
late in the game (just last week!), so it would be somewhat unreasonable
to require a contribution by Monday. I'm not sure whether OPW will
consider applications handed in past the deadline, however I'll try
to sort things out if your run into any problems due to that.

Have you already taken some time to find a project that you're interested
in doing. Have you had a look at the project ideas list on our OPW page?
http://subversion.apache.org/opw.html
Does any of these project ideas appeal to you, or if not do you have
any other project idea? I'm very open to suggestions, and would be happy
to mentor any project you'd be interested in doing.

Please note that as a project we prefer to keep any communication which
doesn't involve sensitive or private matters on the dev@ list (i.e this
list), which is publicly archived, so that everyone involved can stay
on top of what's going on.

I'm 'stsp' in #svn-dev on freenode, BTW. I'll try to be reachable
for you there as well, as far as my current schedule permits.
