> to directly by our organization profile. 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
> :( ; new organizations are usually limited to 2 slots but it is all
> 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 allocations); list of
> accepted orgs; timeline : student applications from March 23 through April
> 3, then we madly decide, then acceptances are announced April 15th.
