OPW applicants should apply before 1st May 19:00 UTC. This means they
must fill the template in the wiki before this deadline, but they can
improve it later in the same way GSoC applicants do.

For OPW applicants, we apply the same criteria: they can do their
contributions/tasks during the evaluation period.

I would like to remember everyone that once applicants have done the
task, their results should be linked from the applicant template.
