Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Training (incubating) Proposal
Date Tue, 29 Jan 2019 22:00:58 GMT
Hi Lars,

I'll volunteer to mentor the project if it ends up incubating. And I'd like to join the discussion
as a member of the (P)PMC. The idea of an open source project to help rationalize training
materials is very appealing.

I'm also very interested in the ecosystem of not-for-profit education and I think this project
would be a great fit.
