Up front, relevant links are:
The mentoring organisation application period starts tomorrow (3 Mar)
and runs until 12 Mar (noon US Pacific time). That's not a lot of time.
Fortunately we don't need any kind of "final" projects list; Google
just wants to see that we have a bunch of project ideas and have given
this some thought (student applicants submit project proposals, anyway).
So, really the only thing needed right now is to finalise the mentors
list. I see we have 6 confirmed right now, with one 'maybe'. I think
that's decent, though maybe a little on the small side. If anyone else
who has sufficient Xfce dev experience would like to jump in, feel free.
Otherwise, all I need is someone to volunteer to be the backup mentor
administrator. These are the responsibilities of the admin:
The backup admin would need to be able to step in and take over that
stuff in the event I disappear. I am planning on a 1.5-week vacation in
June or July (not sure if I'll have internet access), so I'd probably
need someone to fill in for me then. Otherwise you shouldn't have to do
anything. So... any takers?
