Subject Re: GSoC Mentor vetting procedure
Date Sun, 18 Mar 2012 21:50:52 GMT
I'm not ok with that. I think it's important to vet mentors better
than we have in the past--I know that it pushes some extra work onto
the PMCs and mentors, but if we're going to keep asking for the number
of projects we've had in the past, the admins can't do all the work.
And as we get bigger and GSoC gets more and more popular, it's
important to be reasonably thorough about this.
