Hi,

now we got our slots and I ask you to accept the best applications quickly.

We have 16 applications where someone of us wants to mentor the student, 
but we have only 11 slots. Org admins can accept applications (mentors 
perhaps too? I do not know). We have to be quick as if a student applied 
at more than one organization and one of the other organizations is 
quicker in accepting him, it goes to there. We can ask the other org 
whether they would pass the student to us, but they are not obliged to 
do so. With this mechanism there is also no de-duplication meeting any 
more this year. So act quickly.

If you are an org admin, go onto the page of your desired student's 
application, confirm the mentors and backup mentors, and accept. Do not 
worry to be too quick with that, you can unaccept if you change your mind.

If you are a mentor and not org admin, contact one or more org admins to 
ask for accepting students for you. Please tell which students.

If you are not a mentor and want to see the applications (and perhaps 
help us on the decisions, or even help us mentoring), tell me your name 
and e-mail address so that I can invite you as mentor.

Now we have 11 slots for 16 students. As I do all the organization work 
I have already taken 3 slots for OpenPrinting, so there remain 8 slots 
for 13 students. Please discuss and tell me, and/or Jan-Simon (CCed) who 
are the lucky students getting the slots.

Yes, we did not get many slots this time, but it seems that there were 
very many great student applications (passing the first step of a mentor 
within the org stepping up) for which the orgs requested slots, many 
more than the slots offered by Google.

    Till
