Looks nice. Please note that for this season at least we're aiming to
specific projects for which we already found at least one Debian-related
person interested in mentorship. So we would appreciate if you join one
of those projects (listed in https://wiki.debian.org/SeasonOfDocs2019
). Is there any project there for which you feel particularly motivated?
(One or 2 more projects idea may appear during today or tomorrow, but it
would depend mostly on the availability of other Debianers to mentor, so
it's not sure yet).

Please have a look at the timeline and note that the program starts on
September and will last until end of November, so most of the mentors'
work will be done those months.
Thanks again, and don't hesitate to keep on involved in Debian until
