I don't want to comment the so called mentor advice here on this thread
further. People who have read this thread have learned the lesson or
anti lesson depending from where you are coming and looking on the project.

It would be nice if all people could do everything in the project but
the reality looks different. Especially if a project is so huge as AOO
and where a lot of non developers are part of the project. I don't see a
real problem here. Everybody should do what he can do and what the time

And by the way it's a requirement of Apache to be a committer to get
access to some tools etc.

Just an appeal and advice from me to Hagar

1. keep on doing your good work for the project and especially in the
forum, it is very important work and the project needs you!!!

2. if you have time and if you are interested to learn more about the
CMS watch the video from Rob
( that Dave has mentioned
already. It is of course no rocket science and you can make smaller
changes quite easy.

Have a nice weekend
