As I was Google Summer of Code student last year I know how much important
it is for a student to have a mentor who will review the patches or provide
pointer to the right person for a particular topic. I would love to work
with a student and happy to see a new contributor in mercurial community.
If there is a project where I can be a part of mentoring, I am very much
interested to have that opportunity.
