Since you were the only one to participate in the program so far, you 
probably have some useful additional information.

For example (imagining that you had time instead) would you re-propose 
the project about build system? Was it too complex, too isolated, 
too...? I remember seeing some very welcome updates and wiki pages at 
the beginning, then I lost track. Did some code get committed at the 
end? Can you give an evaluation of your group of students (an overall 
evaluation, without discussion about individuals), and also estimate the 
effort required from you? With more information, maybe someone will show up.

If you have some ideas of possible projects this could help in 
selecting. For example, a "Summer of code" project is for one student 
for 2-3 months. Here, if I understand correctly, one can tackle much 
bigger issues, and the expected workload is 2-4 students for 8 months, 
so this could be an occasion to get significant contributions.
