IMHO GSOC has been really good for the XSF.

As bear mentions, the success is proportiante to the mentors input and
organisation time. Kudos to Kev too: he has also done a great job
marshalling teams in the last two years that I've been involved.

I'd be happy to help more this year. It's a great program an attracts some
great minds to the XSF world.
