Actually, the real deadline for applying is now sometimes next monday,
and the chances of getting in are thiner and thiner... It seems to have
been a victim of its own success and they are overwhelmed by
applications. If the Hurd (or Hurd/L4?) wants to have a chance to get
in, you should contact them right now and only then worry about who will
mentor people (there's until 1st of May to decide on the projects ideas
and 22nd of May to have the definitive list of mentors).

If you are rejected, perhaps can you manage to mentor some people on
Hurd projects under the umbrella of the GNU project?
