Re: Google Summer of Code Question

Hi Ozgur,

CCing the list, like you suggested.

By my count, we received 44 applications.  Somewhere around half of them
were about Dashboard.  Most of the rest were for ideas listed on the web
site, and a few were original ideas.

More than half of the applications were sent in during the final 36
hours prior to the deadline, so I honestly haven't read most of them

My inclination is that we'll probably take between 5 and 10.  I am a
little worried about overcommitting myself as a mentor, and the only
other mentor we have is Jon Trowbridge, who can realistically only take
on 1 or maybe 2 students.

Many of the applications that I have read are quite good, and it is
going to be very difficult to decide.

Maybe?  I think it's still a little too early to tell.
