Hey, great! I only consider myself unfit as a mentor, while acting as a
project administrator just sounds boring/tedious - no problem with
that. So unless someone else volunteers, I step up for the job.
Having a backup admin is good (being required to *always* answer within
48 hours if Google wants something can be inconvienient in times of
bad connectivity).
We do have a time problem: The registration process for gsoc mentoring
organizations (not projects!) started today (8th) and ends on the 12th.

I'm reading 
http://code.google.com/soc/
and
http://socghop.appspot.com/document/show/gsoc_program/google/gsoc2010/faqs
and
http://socghop.appspot.com/document/show/program/google/gsoc2009/orgcriteria

I'll report back later. If someone would be willing to act as admin or
backup admin or just help out with the registration proecess please let
me know. Also, maybe someone has participated in another project that
successfully applied, if so, maybe you can share what the dos and donts
are.

ciao

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that
works. Some say that should read Microsoft instead of technology.
