Subject Re: FW: [GSoC Mentors Announce] Google Summer of Code 2013
Date Fri, 15 Feb 2013 13:01:42 GMT
Thanks for stepping up Ulrich

I intend to mentor this year so don't want to Admin. However, as always I
will be around should things get out of control.

+1 to having an Admin + a mentor at the summit. I'd suggest making the
requirement to be active in representing communicating the benefits of the
programme to the ASF. Pre-announce this to mentors. Don't put too many
restrictions on what we will consider valuable but perhaps suggest things
like blogging, data collection etc. When it comes to deciding I suspect the
ComDev PMC make nominations and then either have a private vote or draw
names out of a hat.

I don't think we should make mentoring more than one student a criteria.
Personally I'd rather see a single well mentored student than two
adequately mentored ones.
