It wasn't a specific call for anything, just for who is interested in
GSoC - partly to get people who are self-directed enough to respond
without being poked because being active in GSoC is a multi-month

Right now there is not enough interest but please do prove me wrong
(I'm saying that politely and not as a finger-poke-in-the-chest way.)

Currently the list on the wiki is 4 people long if you don't count me.
 If we find that more folks are interested then yes, I can be the org
admin but I lack the time to be a mentor herder (which in the past has
been required for some mentors.)
