As I explained on IRC, I have experience as a mentor for GSOC.
I mentored for OSGeo Foundation (http://osgeo.org) projects.
But, I'm lacking of experience with CoApp.

However, I have just registered as a mentor for CoApp using the URLs above :)
In case of emergency, I'll do my best and hopefully with help from
other CoApp'ers :)
