Sugar Labs has been accepted into Google Summer of Code
Yay! Now we have work to do. Remember: the more students apply to our
program, the better our chances of getting more actual slots assigned, so
both publicity and making a good impression count. Go ahead, blog it, tweet
it, tell your friends.

-We can expect most of those students to check out at least the pages linked
to directly by our organization
That is: http://sugarlabs.org/ ,
http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Summer_of_Code/Student_application_template ,
and http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/DevelopmentTeam/ProjectIdeas . Go look at
those pages, pretending you're a GSoC student who's never heard of Sugar
Labs. Do they answer your questions?

-We need to be ready to answer student questions on IRC, sugar-devel, and

-If you would like to be a mentor, we can still add mentors. Please sign up.

-If you are already signed up as a mentor, please set up your profile on
http://socghop.appspot.com/ and then privately email your link_id to walter
bender, mel chua, and(or) me.

-Random answers: right now we have 11 mentors signed up; OLPC did not get in

discretionary by LH and other GSoC admins, and she is very reasonable, so I
suspect we may "inherit" OLPC's history; otherwise, slots are generally
proportional to student applications (more FAQ on slot
list of accepted
student applications from March 23 through April 3, then we madly
then acceptances are announced April 15th.
