I think we are close. The following people have been pressed into
service, errr, volunteered:


I know that I asked Anton / glance but I don't remember if I managed to
get him to agree.

Anyone else willing and able to mentor? If there is a pet project of
yours either on the list (the wiki page above) or even if it isn't, you
can volunteer to mentor just one specific project and we'll sort it out
as we get students (and feel free to add pet projects to the wiki page).

Yes. Please. We have until Friday.

By then I need to figure out how to sign up as an organization. I signed
up as a person but can't quite figure out the next step. Oops.

Yes, I'll be happy to sign this on behalf of Subsurface... once I
figured out how :-)
