Thanks.  It's something that I've been pondering several times in the
past, too.  I know Holger did it once for Osmocom in the past, AFAIR,
and in netfilter (where I was involved before) we also participated
in GSoC.

The results were - as any results from new developers - mixed.  But
I think it's a good opportunity to get new people involved in the project.

I think it's a good idea and I'd support it.  I just know that given the
many projects I'm already way too late with and overloaded, I will not
be able to personally mentor a GSoC student.

So I'm happy to help with formailtiies, etc. - but that's about it, sorry.
