Molly, before jumping into choosing more people and processes, could it
be useful to clarify the admin status, deciding whether anybody is
jointly both GSoC and Outreachy admin, whether they will be run
separately like before and whether more admins are still needed?
Alex commented in the public thread that he prefers GSoC only and I
would take the same view and mentor a maximum of 1 project but maybe
none. It would be helpful if you and Jaminy could also confirm.
