Dear Mentors (ddutta/flwang/julim/hughsaunders/greghaynes/annegentle/sriramhere/arnaudleg/coroner/boris_42/blint/ybudupi/cppcabrera),

Please log into the Google GSoC web-site and review **all** proposals
within a week (our own deadline - say 29th).

1) Please click "Wish to mentor" on the left hand side, if you are
willing to mentor this project.
   Yes, we should have more than one mentor. This is a way to mention
that you are willing to mentor,
   actual assignment will happen later i believe. So please switch
this on for all projects you are
   interested in.

2) If you have a question about a proposal and need a response from
the candidate, please leave
   a comment for them. If you want to ask a observation/question to
other mentors or me, leave a
   comment marked "Private"

3) To assign a score. Please click on the number of start in "My
score:" at the bottom
    5 = amazing applicant, could be a module maintainer on completing
the program
    4 = strong applicant, will do a good job
    3 = good applicant, but is somewhat inexperienced
    2 = is unlikely to do a good job
    1 = not a good candidate

Please feel free to leave detailed notes on candidates you know well
for other mentors (Please mark comments as "Private")

If you are not able to help with this exercise, please let me know ASAP.

If anyone else would like to step up and be a Mentor for any of these
projects/students, please register in the Google GSoC site and let me
know your "username".
