Subject Re: Fwd: [GSoC Mentors] Deadline for Google Code-in 2013 Mentoring Org Apps is Monday, Oct 28th at 19:00 UTC

No. I have forwarded this information to the ComDev PMC a few weeks back but nobody seems to
have an
interest in driving this.

I think we have never participated in GCI because the tasks don't match well with what we
do and
because mentoring juvenile high-school students is something very different than mentoring
college students and probably a lot more time-consuming too.
