So now we have one more slot to allocate, and one lucky project will
(barring Google overrides) get two slots.  Looking at the list, it seems
the contenders are wget, grub, phpgroupware, and gnowsys.  Could those
mentors (and any others I missed) write a bit about their
second-favorite project, chances of success, past history (if any) with
the student, etc.?

Reviewing the proposals again now, they all look pretty good (as one
would expect), and are all in totally different spaces.  So I doubt
there's any "objective" way to decide.

I hope no bitterness will ensue, since at least everyone gets one!

Just putting the case of the second shortlisted student of the four who applied for gnowsys.  the candicate, is Dinesh.  Who was for the last 6months or so, the main contributor who did substantial work (as the cvs checkins indicate), and the project is progressing well due to his good contributions.  His work and knowledge and competency were never in doubt.  the reason I have to push Divya's case for Dinesh was first, we are unlikely to get two so we have to choose one.  second, gnowsys needs a gnome frontend to promote its usage.  Dinesh works in the backend, Divya wants to work on the presentation layer of the app.  Due to practical reasons, we artificially pushed Divya.   leave it entirely to Karl's decision, no issues here.   I will be happy with any decision.
