Subject Re: Fwd: Apache PMCs: your chance to support your projects with Outreachy internships
Date Sat, 25 Jan 2020 14:24:40 GMT

Sorry I didn't respond earlier. I am not sure what others think but my opinion is that  we
need to be demonstrating that we are able to provide the kind of support required before offering
such mentoring. In offering mentoring for these kinds of programs, we need to consider whether
we are definitely capable of providing the required benefits for interns, not just what they
can do for us.

Obviously this is a pity so, on the assumption that there are more Outreachy events, we should
look to be ready to take part next time.
