I do not have time to handle this this year.

GSoC is nice, but the fact that students get paid and mentors don't
get paid can create frustrations, especially when mentors are also
active contributors of the community.  It's double work for them, 
at least this is my experience.

We were lucky enough to have three GSoC projects last year, and from
all the students we had, only Thorsten continues to contribute here.
This is a good result, but maybe Thorsten would have contributed
anyway -- so a bit disappointing in terms of "recruitment".

That's for sure.  Maybe next year?

We can continue to store ideas on Worg any time.
