   [ This message is a "mentor request" and part of an experiment
     described in this thread:

     A mentor is any frequent Emacs contributor who directs newcomers to
     documentation and helps them polish code contributions, easing them
     through Emacs' specific procedures, aiming to lower the entry
     barrier to Emacs development. If possible, mentors should try to be
     reasonably agnostic to the proposal's pertinence or particular
     implementation - that can be discussed later. Discussion can happen
     in or off-list. If on-list, use a "[mentoring]" prefix to the
     subject line, so that other users can keep all but essential
     comments to a minimum. ]

Hi, I'm looking for a mentor who would help me clean up the code I have


"ecco" is a literate-programming style documentation generator for
emacs. Its a port of the "docco", "shocco" and "rocco" tools for other
languages found around the web.  An advantage of ecco is that it uses
Emacs's built-in comment processing funcionality and highlighting
functionality and so it works for any language.

I believe "ecco" can be polished to make it into Emacs.

I'm looking for pointers on how to clone the Emacs repository after the
recent Git transition, whether to use Emacs or ELPA for it, plus any
other tips that increase my chances.

Waiting to hear from a mentor, or from any newcomer who wants to take
over the mentoree part of this project.
