Thanks! Of course, all technical discussions about these projects will 
happen on the respective mailing lists, so you'll be more than welcome 
to give feedback and/or help the students.

IIUC the role of the mentors is more a committment to the student (and 
to Google) that someone will be here to assist them and assess their 
work, but actual work is meant to happen right here, in collaboration 
with all community members as usual.

The ASF still has to clarify how to allow the students to contribute 
their code easily, as they won't be given full commit access unless 
they're committers already, but we want them to get acquainted with the 
actual process that we're using. We might use SVN sandboxes or branches 
with different access rights, but this hasn't been formally decided 

I think it's like having an intern work at your company: you want them 
to have the tools but not to use the really sharp ones on their own.
