Well, now that I can't claim no knowledge of this...

Alex is already an arch tester for SPARC, helping test packages and
such. He's also interested in joining the Java team and has
bootstrapped IcedTea on SPARC.

The SPARC team is pretty thin, so he's having a little trouble finding
a mentor. armin76 and I have helped him a little with the ebuild quiz,
which he has now completed. The ebuild quiz has not been reviewed by
anyone to my knowledge.

Any volunteers to mentor him?
