You really should familiarize yourself with our GSoC processes. All of that has been asked
and is available either in the mailing list archives or on our webpages.

To answer your questions: Mentoring two or more projects is allowed but discouraged and needs
explicit allowance by the GSoC admins. It will only be granted if the mentor has made clear
they are experienced and understand the additionally required expenditure of time. Two or
mentors per project is not only allowed but encouraged. Indeed we want the whole community
to be the
student's mentors.
