Hi all,

the Python Software Foundation accepts to keep us with them
for GSoC 2014, provided that

* our students will blog every two weeks about their advancement and
* the mentor stipends go to the PSF.

Both things seem reasonable.
It's not clear to me how many slots will be available, we'll see.

We now have to provide contact info of 3 mentors;
Kevin and Brodie already told me they are available.
