If you are willing to be a mentor to students and new developers
please add yourself to the list of mentors, which now lives on its
very own wiki page at:

Having a list of mentors (and having contact info for individual
mentors who are willing to handle direct questions from students) is
said to improve the odds that students will propose useful projects.
So I also encourage mentors to add a link from their name on the wiki
page to their User page (User:WikiName) and to add extra details such
as what projects interest them and contact information if they are
willing to deal with student inquiries.  If anyone has any ideas to
improve this page please suggest or implement them!

Here is the current list of mentors. If you want to be on (off) the
list go add (remove) yourself.

    * W. Eric Norum
    * Chris Johns
    * Ralf Corsépius
    * Alain Schaefer
    * Thomas Doerfler
    * Ray Xu
    * Alan Cudmore
    * Daron Chabot
    * Aaron J. Grier
    * Peter Dufault
    * Sébastien Bourdeauducq (lekernel)
    * Luis Gustavo Lira
    * Gedare Bloom
