Hi Vasilis,

That's great. The mentor for git sync is Thomas Gazagnaire, who should
be back from holiday next week.

By the way, I'm not sure these star ratings are very accurate. This is
a 1-star project, but it looks quite hard to me! Are you familiar with
the Git protocol? If not, learning that and OCaml at the same time
might be tricky.

If anyone wants some really easy (but useful!) getting started tasks,
I've added a pioneer project to find libraries using printf and update
them to use Logs:
