You have to do three things:

1. On the application's page on the left, the switch "Accept Proposal" 
must get set to "Yes" (I have done it for you on KMSCON now, generally, 
every mentor can set this switch).

2. The person supposed to mentor this student has to sign up as a mentor 
if he has not done so. If he is already signed up or after getting my 
approval for his mentor application he can access the page of the 
student's application. He has to set the switch "Wish to Mentor" to 
"Yes". Note that I cannot do this for him.

3. After that refresh the application's page and you find the mentor's 
name in the "Assign mentor" menu. Please select it and click "ASSIGN". 
Refresh the page again. This step can be done by any mentor as soon as 
step (2) is completed.

Now everything is done to secure a slot for this student.

Greg, if the proposed mentor is not on the CC list of this mail, forward 
this instructions to him.
