Thanks for the summary! I'm happy to be the admin, since I'm not
expecting ;-) Or to co-admin if someone else wants the job.

(Full disclosure: I haven't been much involved in the ASF side of GSoC
in the past, but I've worked on documentation for the webapp, and done
mentoring, as part of my 20% time at work. I'm employed by Google, but
this isn't part of my official "day job" stuff there :-) )
