; future GSoC students
: we have questioned the value of this. Most students don't stay after GSoC and most projects do not get merged into core and the packages. Even if it costs us no money, it costs us a lot of time since most students need a lot of hand holding, and it's the whole community that is actually mentoring. Ignoring the students is also not nice to them. Nir is the person responsible and he's not attending this year so we are not deciding anything. However, we need to ensure that students know much, and do a better job at filtering out clueless students.
