I have started an acceptance letter at the bottom of this page:
- http://docs.codehaus.org/display/GEOTOOLS/Google+Summer+of+Code

Please review.

And also cut and pasted the SoC, and added a few tasks we need to get 
sorted out (including tomorrows deadline).

> Right off the bat we should hit them with a list of requirements, ie 
> weekly meeting with mentor/progress report...
> Thoughts:
> - send an intro email right away
> - everyone should let frank know that they have made contact with 
> their student
> - secondary mentors for each student (for improved communication when 
> offline)
> - get the students talking on devel mailing lists (emphasis with 
> getting the student into the COMMUNITY)
> - set them up with svn access (your code will live here) and such
> - private mailing list for osgeo gsoc students only?
> - blogging? (a blog post from each student, each week or two would be 
> cool... and would make osgeo more visible -- there may be a group 
> already hosting gsoc 2007 student blogs)
> - each project should introduce the gsoc students on the mailing list
> - osgeo will get $7500 from google as its mentoring stipend; will this 
> (or a portion) be distributed to each project or held by osgeo?
