We attended the GSoC rejection meeting this morning. The main feedback
was to improve our projects ideas page. Our ideas were not flushed out
enough and we didn't have a complete mentors list/assignment.
The ideas page weighed more heavily than the org applications this
year. It seems that (now) most orgs do a good job on the application,
so the ideas page and mentor list is the defereniator.
GSoC snuck up on me this year and I did a called for mentors too late.
We were not organized well enough, early enough. I think that is my
fault and I apologize.
This year, we have the opportunity to put more thought into the
direction of coreboot and projects, flushout the idea on the wiki and
be more prepaired for next year. I can use your help in this. Please
start editing the wiki.
