You may reach lool0 IRC or XMPP on if you want to talk with him about
Pytoeba. Also, if you haven’t yet, have a look at these articles:

Basically all the possible mentors for projects other than Pytoeba are
me and Trang. Actually, all the ideas listed in the ideas page are
merely ideas, not well-defined projects. Nobody knows the “details of
the project” yet. We expect students to learn more about Tatoeba, to
investigate the ideas by asking us questions, so that we can identify
the problems more clearly and come up with precise solutions, or even
different solutions from what’s suggested on the ideas page. And by
“us”, I mean the developers on IRC/XMPP and the community on the
website, on the Wall or by PM. For instance, recently pullnosemans has
been talking on the Wall about the uselessness of discussions on the
Wall and that we need a better system to organize and decide upon what
to do. I’m sure he’d have a lot to say to you about that if you ask
him, and maybe that idea could evolve into a bigger project. I’ll be on
IRC tomorrow evening (GMT+1).
