Hi all, an update on GSoC'13. We do have enough mentoring power after all;
NumPy/SciPy is now registered as a participating project on the PSF page:

Prospective students: please have a look at
http://wiki.python.org/moin/SummerOfCode/Expectations and at
http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/wiki/SummerofCodeIdeas. In particular note
that we require you to make one pull request to NumPy/SciPy which has to be
merged *before* the application deadline (May 3). So please start thinking
about that, and start a discussion on your project idea on this list.
