We are aware that it will be different and more difficult functioning in a
real open source environment, but we are enthusiastic and committed to
making it work. With the help of our mentors, we hope to be successful.

We are working on it right now. Initially we though that the code will be
made publicly available by bringing it to ASF, but we are working to make
the current repository public.

Thank you,
