The latest discussion on the topic at the board was that it was not the
norm in GSOC amongst projects to distribute mentor funds directly to
mentors. That said the board does intend to spend the money from GSOC on
projects - meaning QGIS can make requests for some of those funds to be
spent on QGIS' behalf or transferred to a QGIS org account. They just
wanted to avoid the overhead of cutting checks and tax paperwork to many

So, if we need $ for something like a code sprint OSGeo is willing to
put up some. Might be a good way to entice matching funds...
