Subject Re: ManifoldCF mentors (was Re: [VOTE] Release ManifoldCF 0.2-incubating, RC2)

Oh - and in case any potential mentors lurking out there would like to
know what ManifoldCF really does, and where it fits in in the broader
picture, you can look at the first chapter of ManifoldCF in Action for
free here: .  This describes the
problem space pretty well, I think.

Long-term future plans involve extending ManifoldCF so it can scale in
a distributed fashion, which will require initial work to use
Zookeeper as the cross-process synchronization mechanism, as well as
building a distributed queue across multiple database instances.
Also, ManifoldCF has rather unique requirements as far as testing
infrastructure is concerned, which could arguably lead to other
spinoff Apache projects someday.

Please contact me if you're interested!
