We now have 8 strong projects. Anyone who is interested please 
put yourself in the mentor list of any of these projects [1] (it 
doesn't matter if the project already has 1 or more mentors; the 
more, the better). Also, please make sure that the project 
descriptions are in good shape. The application deadline is in a 
few hours. Let's keep our fingers crossed.
