In my opinion, and thus I guess the official OSGeo position is that it
would be fine. However, I'd be more comfortable with a second mentor
from GeoServer. We do after all aim to have two mentors per student,
this would be good in cross pollination of the Java projects IMHO :P
Perhaps a part-time co-mentor, while mentoring some other student.
More as a back up in case there is something which the student gets
stuck on.
