Thanks for asking.

For the community bonding period, you should react to your change in
status from a "proposal student" to a "selected student", and the other
changes like;

1.  your membership of the Sugar Labs GitHub organisation,

2.  your ownership of a software project, consisting so far of our
ideas doc, your proposal doc, and any pull requests you have done,

3.  the close yet impartial relationship that must form with your

4.  that the other students you previously competed with are now on
the same team,

5.  everyone knows who you are and what you are doing, there is less
doubt overall.

Specific suggestions;

[ ]  read and apply the roles and responsibilities, learning also what
the mentors and org admin are responsible for, keep yourself and us
accountable to them,

[ ]  continue making pull requests, raising issues, testing software,
as you have time; this is how you demonstrate your ongoing capacity to
do the project, and time spent now may save you time later,

[ ]  increase your skills through reading, practice, peer review, and

[  ] review pull requests by others; before the responsible maintainer
(e.g. Lionel) has time to do so; test, evaluate, suggest improvements,
and so forth, see

[ ]  set up "watching" notifications on all relevant GitHub
repositories, including any forks or dependencies,

[ ]  remove any software you don't need, clone any repositories you
might need, install any necessary tools you have been avoiding, set up
daily or weekly backups, plan what to do if your computer fails,

[ ]  take your proposal, strip out the application section, leaving
just the project plan, and begin to iterate deeper into that plan,
making plans within plans; it was not worth doing before, but is worth
doing now,

[ ]  keep a diary; not for publication, but so you know what you
tried, what failed, what passed, good for dopamine,

[ ]  daily tell your mentor a brief summary of what you have done, in
point form, as simple as possible,

[ ]  make gradual necessary changes to your social, religious, or
commercial life to free the time you will need once the work period

[ ]  plan appropriate exercises and other health interventions to
compensate for having to sit and work,

[ ]  tell your friends and family all about it, and listen to what
they say.

Other mentors may have other ideas to suggest.
