I see only two applications for the Derby Test and Fix project have been 
submitted, both of which have been discussed on the list.  So far Tiago 
is the only person that has committed as mentor but it is always 
possible we might get another last minute volunteer.  I can't say how 
many slots Derby will get as there are quite a few variables.   There is 
at least the requirement that each proposal accepted have a mentor 
volunteer to accept it and then from there proposals are ranked 
according to criteria outlined at 
http://community.apache.org/mentee-ranking-process.html.  Google decides 
how many slots as a whole Apache will get and then according to the 
ranking there is a line drawn.  There is a complication that the tool 
has changed this year, but I am sure that while the exact methods 
described may change, the criteria will be the same for ranking.

Welcome to the community. I hope you stay and participate even if you 
don't make the GSoC submission deadline.  We have had quite a few 
students that didn't make it into the program the first year they 
applied but stayed involved and were successful GSoC students in 
subsequent years.
