Nice - I quickly looked through the old applications, which were really 
many ...

I think we shouldn't make that many applications this year (as google 
suggested to us) and try to describe the few ones much better.

I would be up for a mentor this year, as I am now working somehow ;)

What do you mean, how should we proceed ?
Maybe we should make a new WIKI page and each mentor describes the 
projects he likes on the new page (and copies parts from last years 
projects) !

Then we could decide a few days before the deadline, which descriptions 
are complete enough for the proposal.
