I still haven't been able to establish a technical mentor for my SoU
project. I need a Drupal developer with a fair amount of Drupal karma
and a small interest in usability, for this project to be successful.
I'll be plain;

*I'm directly asking Dries, core developers, and other
similarly-respected folk in the Drupal community, for someone who can
commit about 3 hours per week for three months.*

This is a sizable contribution to Drupal and will result in
considerable usability improvements.

Please see details on CivicActions blog for details.
