41 Indeed, your name is everywhere when it comes down to rox thing. Because
42 your dedication on rox subject, I am willing to help you become a dev,
43 but I need to be sure you are not going to dissapear in the very next
44 moment.
45 Gentoo history is full of such individuals who only want to be sure that
46 they could become devs but are not willing to put any effort behind it.
48 Do you want be a dev? Are you sure you could take the heat? What do you
49 expect from Gentoo and what do you have to offer in exchange?
51 Please email me the answers to these questions on my private address. I
52 need to know you a bit before I decide if I could mentor you or not.
