I agree, all ignored now. Either no or no sufficient content or content 
which does not make sense.

> This student suggested two proposals that aren't good and likely the student isn't going to improve them. So I suggest to ignore them if Greg doesn't mind:
> Sandhya - IIO driver - https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/dashboard/organization/6564234674569216/proposal/5372313474170880/
> Sandhya - memory management latency tracing - https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/dashboard/organization/6564234674569216/proposal/5404748865863680/

Final PDF contains exactly the same as the abstract, no info about 
school, course type, already acquired knowledge, ... I would ignore 
these. Greg, please confirm.

> This student creates 3 different applications for 3 different projects without providing any particular details. I see his applications a bit and this doesn't look like he really wants and can to implement something valuable. So I suggest to just ignore his proposals:

For me the now revealed final PDFs from Ravike14 look OK. Kernel guys, 
please check.

Chris (MacNaughton and Holcombe), can you check, you told that you had 
already a student. Please "WANT TO MENTOR" and star the correct CEPH 

> narendasan - Proposal for work on QEMU API for Rust - https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/dashboard/organization/6564234674569216/proposal/5184290644033536/ and DrewSidman - QEMU API for Rust - https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/dashboard/organization/6564234674569216/proposal/6135625933651968/ (at the moment both are accepted although the second application even doesn't have any proposal just the abstract)

Chris (MacNaughton and Holcombe), same as for the CEPH applications.

> The rest proposals (~9) are either already thoroughly reviewed and accepted or need this ASAP.

I am taking care of the 5 OpenPrinting proposals, please take care of 
all the others, mark with IGNORE what you for sure do not want to mentor 
and mark with a star what you want to mentor and also click "WANT TO 
MENTOR" on the proposal page. Please try to get two mentors per student, 
if only one is actually doing the mentoring work, the other is a backup.

Please tell if you are in doubt with something.
