If some participant needs any guidance or mentoring, I’d be happy to help.

I noticed that the rules of the competition allow and encourage participants to get help from others. So, I am ready to help any friends of our community, if possible.

However I don’t think that FSFE would like to coordinate this kind of mentoring.

Personally I don’t have any indication for this, but it you have that I’d propose to skip contacting them.
