Sorry for that. I didn't want to "dizz" you! This shouldn't be an
attack. My intention was to clear up the situation a bit because it was
not clear to me at all how we should proceed.

I didn't know that it's possible to have multiple mentors for one
project. As this indeed seems possible I propose that Per and I (and
Steffen if he likes) mentor this project together. I would really like
to share the mentoring responsibilities and as I know Per from Debconf9
I think we can work together quite well. But ultimately Thibaut has the
right to choose his mentor(s).
I now applied to become a mentor on the GSoC page Obey Arthur Liu
As I didnt hear anything from Thibaut in the last few days I don't know
if he's still interested and if he even followed the discussion on the
pkg-fso list (I CC'ed him on this mail).
