I'm fine either way :-)

Initially it seemed a bit odd to me, that although I always call myself
"antrik" in all my Hurd-related an generally most of my online
activities, everyone addresses me by my christian name in email... But
by now I got used to it so much that it actually feels almost strange
when someone addresses me as "antrik" in email...

Don't think so :-)

Well, while I certainly think that the students did great work, I'm
generally tend to be quite sceptical about effusive statements...

More importantly, as I did the biggest part of the mentoring, it would
be praising myself -- so obviously I couldn't write it like that :-)

Feel free to improve it :-)

Well, Andrei told us by the end of the summer session that right after
the official deadline, he is starting on his PhD, and won't have time to
work on the project for at least four months...

All of the others have been doing some work on their projects over the
past weeks. I don't know the current status though, as nobody came to
this week's IRC meeting...

Well, it is mentioned in the paragraphs for the individual projects...
