>> thanks Anne, and congrats to Pietro, Stepan, and Eric! Unfortunately we
>> couldn't accept everyone even though all the applications were interesting,
>> due to lack of slots, matched-mentors, and "strategic alignment" wrt the
>> code. so don't feel too bad if that was you.
>> see http://google-opensource.blogspot.com/2011/02/flip-bits-not-burgers-student-guide.html
>> The next couple of weeks are the "community bonding period", where we
>> get to know and help the students integrate into the development style
>> and methods we use as the students finish up their exams.  During the
>> summer all 3 students will be reporting to us weekly with status updates*,
>> --the more we help them out the more we all get out of it--.
>> [*] students, please link to your wiki/blog page here, feel free to use
>> our GRASS wiki, or the trac wiki if you prefer, for that.
>>  http://grass.osgeo.org/wiki/GRASS_SoC_Ideas_2012#Accepted_Ideas
>> and students should be getting themselves set up to build grass from
>> source code on their machines and permission to commit to the GRASS addons
>> Subversion repository. Your mentor will help you with this.
>> @devs: Pietro's project "Python high level map interaction for GRASS GIS"
>> does not currently have a backup-mentor that I know of, we need to fix
>> that. (n.b., we are ALL backup mentors on the -dev list, especially those
>> of us who have participated in GSoC in the past years, but it's good
>> to have someone listed there)
> I can do the co-mentor, i'll try the work of Pietro and I can help him

That would be great, many thanks indeed.

Best regards

>> congrats again!
