Hi Jan-Peter,

Glad to hear you’re interested in being a mentor.

You might want to look at the GSOC “Mentoring Manual”:

Here’s its description of the mentor role:

Mentor: Mentors are people from the community who volunteer to work with a 
student. Mentors provide guidance such as pointers to useful documentation, 
code reviews, etc. In addition to providing students with feedback and 
pointers, a mentor acts as an ambassador to help student contributors integrate 
into their project's community. Some organizations choose to assign more than 
one mentor to each of their students. Many members of the community provide 
guidance to their project's GSoC students without mentoring in an "official" 
capacity, much as they would answer anyone's questions on the project's mailing 
list or IRC channel.
