Thanks a lot for picking this up.

If I understood you correctly your question to Tony was whether he might
like to volunteer to support drafting an Outreachy proposal.  Guessing
from Tony's response to your mail this was not totally clear to him. 

I personally would support this proposal "mentally" (in terms of proof
reading and lending some helping hand if really needed) but I've just
issued the QA proposal and I'm not permitted to serve as mentor in more
than one project.

Steffen, would you step in here?

Kind regards
