I don't see any reference to terms and conditions or other such legal 
stuff. Assuming that this form does not bind us in any way to anything 
we don't already offer through ComDev then that's fine. As far as I'm 
concerned you can go ahead with this on a lazy consensus basis.

Who do you plan to put down under:

"Contact information for site supervisor (include name, title, e-mail, 
and phone number): "

In many ways I think that should be this list. We have a list of 
projects that are suitable for students and I'd like to make these 
available to SILS. Putting ComDev down means you don't have to worry 
about approaches from people in other areas.

On the other hand, the definition of "site supervisor" [1] is that of a 
mentor in our language. The responsibilities are very similar to those 
of our mentors (in fact I think I'll steal the couple that are missing 
in our definition of a mentor)

Perhaps the best way forward is for you to do it this year as "site 
supervisor" and, if you feel it is appropriate, link them to ComDev to 
explore a more complete offering from the ASF as a whole.
