Hello,A quick follow up to let everyone know that we submitted our GSoC 2007 application on March 6, 2007, at 8:38AM US PST. :-)
You may also want to know that Oliver Ruiz Dorantes has volunteered to be a mentor for Haiku, so we now have a pool of six mentors (including backups).
BTW, it is still possible to become a mentor, so if anyone out there is interested, feel free to contact us (on this list, or myself privately).
So now, to bear the long wait until Google announces the list of selected organizations, on March 14th. Keep your fingers crossed! :-)
