Hi Juan Guillermo,

I have been reminded that the main problem may not be the right medium
but time of proposal, which may be a little late. So I correct my
statement. Nevertheless I suggest you to still go and make your
proposal on this mailing list. :-) That is the preferred channel of
organization, as far as I could see and you'll have better chance to
discuss it with the right people.
See you!
