thanks for the great work. Just for our understanding: My experience
from former GSoC/Outreachy projects is that I sometimes fail to realise
those mails from GSoC organisation and I have nearly missed some
deadlines for responsed I should give as a mentor. So please watch me
closely and ping me always if your realise that I as a mentor should
do something like fill in some form about your performance or so. Its
perfectly fine to nag me about this.
Its a pleasure to work together with you.
