Hi,
If I remember well, someone suggested (while discussing JSF->XSF change) 
that XSF should not participate in Google SoC as a mentor (we don't 
develop software, do we?). I think we should discuss this ASAP, because 
submission deadline is 12th March. And if we decide not to apply, we 
should announce this earlier, so interested XMPP-related project have 
time to think and prepare their applications.

Personally, I have to say that the way it was until now it a bit 
strange, because projects mentored by XSF were really not XSF projects 
(in a way that - for example - Firefox is Mozilla's project). On the 
other hand, small projects, especially new ones (creating something new, 
not just helping existing ones) would have to be mentored directly by 
Google, and maybe not so many of them would be accepted (because of big 
competition, etc).
