I had a number of conversations with a few people already and I think
it's worth clarifying that this cycle I won't have the time to act as
the mentoring organisation liaison (if we should be chosen by Google
this time).

I just felt it important enough to make sure we all try to submit a
great application, so Ubuntu contributors can spend the summer making
Ubuntu better.

So far we have 8 project ideas on the wiki page, we have some bits of
the questionnaire already answered and one person potentially interested
in being a contact person for the mentoring organisation.

Have a great day,
