May I suggest that this time we make it clear that students who do not
bring their projects to full completion within the deadline of GSoC will
not be considered successful and therefore not rewarded (at least not in
full), and that Haiku actually follow through with this?

Otherwise, we set a bad precedent for students and may even make the org
more vulnerable to not being elected in following years.
