Thanks Yann.

I currently have, for rejections:
Hi from the XMPP Standards Foundation

Thanks very much for your application - we're sorry that we received
applications for many more students than we were able to take and we
couldn't accept yours this summer.

Open source projects are largely volunteer-driven and you're still
very welcome to get in touch with XMPP projects and help out with
small or large tasks outside the scope of the GSoC scheme without the
support of the stipend.

and for acceptances:
Hi from the XMPP Standards Foundation

We're very pleased to be able to accept your proposal to work with us
over the summer. We'll shortly be adding you to the XSF's GSoC mailing
list, and from there we'll arrange weekly online meetings with the
students and mentors across the XSF. We'll also be encouraging you to
set up a blog (if you don't yet have one) on which you can post
regularly and frequently about your progress.

In the meantime, please feel free to get in touch with the mentors for
your projects and start the conversation.

Good luck with a productive summer of code!

Comments welcome.
