We need to decide if we're going to go under the PSF umbrella or if we want to go standalone.
I recommend trying standalone and using the psf as a backup, as usual, but we're happy to have you either way. If you need me to backup org admin for mailman, send the request to firstname.lastname@example.org because i can't org admin two orgs from the same account. (My second account is the Google approved solution)
The real advantages to the standalone are two tickets (most expenses paid by Google) to the Mentor Summit, and the $500/student gift to Mailman. But it's more work and lower chance of acceptance.
Honestly, it's not much more work (just one more form of answers for Google) and your chance of acceptance is still moderately high. Scuttlebutt is that most rejected orgs have terrible ideas pages, and Python doesn't allow that anyhow. Stephen, you can see the answers Python gave in the shared Google drive from previous years if you need to crib from something.
For PSF, we need to have project and idea pages up by Monday IIRC. I think Google's deadline is a couple days later.
It's possible you have some sway with the PSF org admin team and could get away with being late with us. ;) But we do have students looking already so sooner is better!
