The above rather sounds like it is up to us to decide whether to keep
the student - whether or not he has indicated preference for another
project. It is true that the action to take in reducing the ranking is
ours, and not the students: however, it has been made quite clear that
the student _must_ (not "should") be consulted, and that if they make a
choice we are expected to comply. If, as Klaus had indicated (off-list),
and also NetBSD has indicated on the mentors list, Matthias-Chris has
opted for NetBSD, it is inappropriate for us to keep him in our top
rankings. We need to hear _now_ if the situation is other than as it has
been represented to be, otherwise he should be immediately ranked below
the top eight.
