That solves a big misunderstanding.

When I participated to the SoC in 2008 and 2009, the Melange interface was the
primary place of discussion, where the potential mentors collectively evaluated
the students and their proposals.  I do not see how anybody except the admins
can do that task if students and mentors contact each other in private.

If you have time, pease remove me from Debian's mentor list on Melange.  I
think that in the end it is the best way I can help you.
