That would be great!
I don't know how many slots we might eventually get, but we will never
get more slots than stated mentors.

Lacking experience I actually don't know. Maybe David Kastrup might want
to drop in some comments here?

work as a developer community (which is of course the spirit of GSoC).
IISC the most important (and least predictable) task of the mentor is to
keep an eye on the project, to keep in touch with the student and ensure
that his work is proceeding sufficiently.

Any coding issues may freely be shared among developers, and Google
explicitly endorses to have code review shared by the devs and not only
been done by the mentor.

So depending on the project and the student it *may* be a rather easy
task. Or not.
