Good for you.  But GSoC is based on orgs, not on individual mentors.

I don't have a problem with that.[1]  I do have a problem with a
situation where students announce moments before the proposal deadline
that they need mentors, and at the last minute a pseudo-org is created.

?? I thought students write proposals?  Do you mean the ideas page?

When I looked at the GNU Project ideas page around the end of the org
application period, I couldn't find any details on Emacs projects (and
the page was pretty scanty overall).

[1]  I admit I'm curious where it's taking place.  Everything I've
seen on the Google mentors' list indicates it's best practice to
organize the "GSoC (sub)org" (including admin, mentors, and their
backups) on the community's usual dev channels, and explicitly move
evaluation to a private, mentors-only channel.  Opinion is divided on
whether proposals should actually be discussed in public before the
due date.
