Indeed.  I will try to write a post-mortem (post-partem?) report after
the GSoC is over.  Sharing this will surely help.

One idea for future GSoC for GNU: GNU could let the mentors use a
percentage of the 500$ received for the project to finance something
related to the project.

For example, KDE is using the money received for each project to help
funding students to participate to the GSoC summit.

Surely Giuseppe and I will gather more ideas by discussing with folks
at the summit.
