Hi Paul,

A paragraph explaining what a mentored project is and what participating 
involves would be helpful.  Full time work?  Travel to Seattle?  For a 
group or an individual?  Those things aren't clear to me from the current 

Also the link to the first project (RGalaxy) gives "Page not found".

Best wishes
