Hello, Obey, thanks for pushing this forward. I have a couple questions,
not having ever been involved with this.

Is a list of ideas needed for the application, and/or something that
gets evaluated and hence something we need to worry about with some
urgency? (There's exactly one week until the organization application
period closes AFAICS.)

I don't think it'll be the case, but if Debian could potentially be left
out for lack of a good list of ideas, maybe a call to d-d-a would be in
order? (Just tryin to be cautious here.)

I'd like to hear a bit about this process, and I'd appreciate if you or
somebody else familiar with the process could answer my questions about

In particular, as a potential mentor, I'm very interested in hearing how
a student gets assigned to a project (do they just express interest on
it? what do those interviews entail and who does them?), and if the
mentors get any say/opportunity to review/ack the student chosen for
their projects.

Thanks in advance,
