A few questions on the GSOC

I'm also a student applying to Summer of Code (different project 
though). I'd say, since the deadline is coming up quickly, at least get 
an application in. If I recall correctly, there are a number of other 
students apply for this project as well.

Also, the person(mickeyl) who is kind of 'heading up' GSoC, is on 
vacation right now, and won't be back(I think) until the Monday that 
applications are due. So, at least from my point of view. I'd say get an 
application in, and go from there. Does that make sense?
