http://maemo.org/maemowiki/GoogleSoC2007 updated, now you can see the
(more or less) current status of the projects submitted.

- Projects with one and only clear mentor have been assigned.

- There are other projects that have mentor candidates but still some
details to be clarified. More than one mentor for a same project, same
mentor in several projects and things like that. 

- Other projects have potential mentors around but nothing I can approve
by clicking the right button.

- It would be good to clarify these cases asap. Community mentors have
got one week to select their projects, now it's time for the backup
mentors to help orphan projects, if they wish.

- I'm surprised about the small percentage of mentor votes we have for
each project, even in the best ranked. I mean, all in all most of the
mentors have ranked one or more projects, but only a few have gone
through, say, more than 4-5. Most mentors if not all seem to be skilled
and have a wide perspective. Can you help prioritizing projects with
your votes, even in those projects that are not closely related to your
interests? This applies to backup mentors as well.

- It has been (unofficially?) said that after tomorrow Google is going
to assign slots to the projects. I believe we will have more chances if
we have more mentors in place and a bigger collection of opinions
ranking the best candidates.
