Proposals were made by applicants who sent them to Google who forwarded 
them as they deemed fit.  Of those received, PSF accepted at least in part 
based on mentor commitments.

Some of the Python proposals were based on projects listed on the PyWiki 
project proposal page and/or discussion on the special mailing list, both 
announced here.  I don't remember any Dabo projects listed, so I suspect 
PSF either received no Dabo proposals or had no Dabo mentors.
