Thanks for the honest review of your mentoring, here's mine.
I'm a mentee, and I was assigned a great mentor who is very helpful.
He helped me produce a package (my own half-finished perl script)
with several back-and-forth emails.
Then I got busy and I think he got busy, so we are working
through our other-work and I hope we'll get back to Debian stuff
So, I have learned a bunch of packaging stuff that would have
taken me forever (or I might not have finished) if I had
tried on my own. But it is only the tip of the iceberg.
The next part of that effort will be to set up a section
of my web site as an apt source. After that I might try
to finish the little script :-)
I also hope to get back to bug-squashing then as well,
if that is still a priority.
