Why are you doing this? You got 17 projects with student submissions
of which against some intra-organisational opposition you found 13 to
be adequate for Debian's interest. And for those 13 now you ask for
funding. Google may bring this down to 10, fine. But why are you doing

The community should do the ranking IMHO. This would involve a voting.

Rudy should be it, the other one did not contact me.

+1 past the deadline.   Fabio should be the one, the only one who contacted
me before the deadline.

I put the "seeking substitute" to all the ideas of mine, IIRC, basically
by principle, and I found substitutes for the others. Just like last year.
This does not mean that I would not want to do he mentoring. Anybody
doing a better job than me with the student and being available should
please be doing it. The GSoC is about the students, not the mentors.
So, count me in ... or out if you find someone else.
