Re: CC to mentor (was: GSoC weekly report of Alexandre Viau for week 1)

Hi Daniel,

The reason that I have asked to CC them is that they could have feedback from their mentors on their weekly progress.Since most of the communication occurs as private, this would be a thread for public communication between mentor and student.This would avoid any conflicts arising due to the miscommunication in future.

Best Regards,

This question comes up a lot on mailing lists.  There is another side to
it: if the mentor is subscribed and they are added on CC, they will
receive two copies of the email.

An easier solution might be:
- don't visibly CC your mentor
- if your mentor tells you they are not subscribed, please BCC them, but
only if they ask you to
