That was similar to the note I was writing just now. If we have
trusted folks who've stepped up to own the coordination effort, just
make sure the Fedora component of OSAS also knows who they are, and
can contribute as needed to the application process.
Regardless of how critical the GSoC projects are, they're a good way
to mentor open source contribution. And as they say, the rising tide
lifts all ships.
If there are questions about the admin side, where's the best place to
have such discussions? Seems OT for this list.
