Hello John,

I was just about to write you :-)

I am available to volunteer. I've just got permission from AT&T
management to dedicate some working hours every week to the project
(this is the reason why I didn't say anything on the spot - I needed to
ask first due to the time requirements).

I am fine with either 16.11 or 17.11, whichever Yuanhan prefers.


Kind regards,
Luca Boccassi
