G'day Amaan,

Thanks for your interest.  When you have had the time to confirm,
please make a pull request to our GSoC 2019 Ideas, or if you can't do
that let me know and I'll make one for you.

We did change requirements for mentors, as you can see here;

Our GSoC 2019 Ideas shows who have offered to be mentors.  Sugar Labs
will select mentors based on those offers and the student proposals
received.  It might be all of the mentors, it might be a few of them,
we can't really know yet.  Walter will be the most involved, but don't
go trying to contact him directly, that's unfair on everyone else.

Timeline for GSoC 2019 is here

I don't know if there is a final date for mentors to apply, and I'm
not sure if the question makes sense.  As an organisation we agree to;

*  "Select and invite trusted, capable, and qualified mentors",

*  "Oversee activity of all mentors and students ensuring
   responsibilities are being met", and;

*  "Ensure adequate and appropriate mentoring coverage, particularly
   near holidays".


Given the timeline;

*  mentors _should_ get themselves listed by 26th February so that the
   ideas are well defined, and the mentors are visible when the
   mentoring organisations are published, and;

*  mentors _must_ get themselves listed or delisted before the 9th
   April student proposals deadline.

Hope that helps!
