Dear Peter,

First of all I'd like to thank you for your strong interest in the
Ubuntu mentoring... And I am also really sorry about the almost 1
month delay that you had to go through.
Without trying to find excuses, we (at the reception) are a bit
overloaded,and we are trying hard to change the way we are dealing
with mentors requests. The results and our new procedure should be in
place in a couple of months... Before that we will continue to address
request the best we can... and in your case I admit it was not enough.

I will take care of your request early next week. If you don't hear
from me soon (let say wednesday) you are allowed to track me on IRC
(huats on Freenode)...

All the best,

          Christophe
