While I'm excited about it, I wouldn't be an effective mentor. Atm, I'm
chronically over-tasked and already struggle to keep up with what I'm
already committed to. More significantly, system administration is not my
strong suit...I can get by :) To be fair to the student, they should have
someone who can give them better advice than I can.

I'll certainly track the development of the project and remove what
barriers I can. Finger crossed that this initiative lines up with someone's
area of focus.
