Subject Re: Mentor recruit for Hama project
Date Mon, 19 May 2008 04:12:59 GMT
Hi Edward,

I think you're going to be in for some significant challenges in
growing a community in what appears to be a fairly specialised field -
but if you're up for that challenge I will be happy to mentor the
project, so you can go ahead and add my name.

Just to clarify - this is intended to be a standalone project, not a
subproject of hadoop?
