now we have a lot of student applications and to assure that we get 
enough slots for all students we want to actually mentor, we need to 
assign mentors to the students until MONDAY at the latest.

In addition, applications which are obviously spam should be marked 
ineligible, also until MONDAY at the latest.

Incomplete proposals should only be ranked down, not marked ineligible.

Please check which students are interesting for you to mentor, and feel 
free to mentor more than one student if there are many good applications.

If you are not registered as a mentor yet, do so ASAP. To do so, do the 

1. Make sure you have a Google account and you are able to log in.

2. Log in on http://socghop.appspot.com/ with your Google account.

3. If you have no user profile for the Google Summer of Code yet, create 
one. If you have a user profile already from one of the previous GSoCs, 
reuse this profile.

4. Under "Programs" -> "GSoC 2010" in the menu on the left you should 
find an entry "Apply to become a Mentor" now. Click it. You will now 
have to select the mentoring organization. It is the Linux Foundation 
(Link ID: "lf"). After submitting your mentor application I will get a 
notification so that I can approve it. You should get a notification 
that I have approved you. After that you have to fill your mentor 
profile. Only having done so you get a mentor and can assign yourself as 
mentor for one or more students. To make it easier for me to recognize 
your GSoC user name, send me an e-mail when you apply to get a mentor.

5. Assure that every good student application has a mentor assigned (not 
only proposed).

Take more students than you really want to mentor for the case that the 
"real" mentor is not available to assign some of the good students to 
him until Monday. We can reassign mentors later, no we only need to 
assign to secure good applications and slots.
