at first I'd like to say that I tried to subscribe the OpenStack
developers list[1].  As you might have read[2] I offered "Mentoring of
the Month"[3] specifically dedicated to a woman by droping the
constraint of requesting a package fitting into Debian Med.

Malihe wanted to start in April and she wrote in private Mail (no
private content exposed here so I'm simply quoting):

I thought it would be a good idea to introduce Malihe into the OpenStack
team even if I'm no member of this team I'd like to try.  However, first
attempt to join the team list seems to have failed - perhaps I get this
mail via the list anyway.  So this mail also serves as a test.

As a bonus I'd like to announce to the OpenStack team that I createt
teammetrics graphs for this team.  Simply go to the page containing the
teammetrics images[4] and seek for openstack.  Feel free to use these
statistics at your preference.

Please tell me what you think that I'd like to guide Malihe into Debian
packaging at the example of Manila.  Any hint to some team policy or any
package that looks similar would be really welcome.

Kind regards
