Well, IIRC, technically speaking, it actually used to be Nicola & 
Stefano, but during my late role of Cocoon PMC chair and given the lack 
of active mentoring at that time I kinda made the leap and became a "de 
facto" mentor. I hope my contributions during that episode were

I'm willing to sit on the PMC if that helps you guys - perhaps in a 
"reactive" role rather than a more proactive one - due to time 
constraints. I think Lenya has been making immense progress on the

are suited for ASF adoption (I have a personal preference towards spec 
implementations, libraries and frameworks), but I guess only Darwin has 
the final say about this.
