Oh, wasn't aware of that. What was the accepted project?

Yeaaahhh!! We are IN :)
Seems we are going into!The mature of the project + the big jump in coordination + the rising of our users seems to have helped to be IN the GSOC :)
Is ReactOS moving to a "New Era"?

If I'm not wrong, the mentors are the programmers from the organization (ReactOS), but I'm not really sure.

Getting mentors is easy. As mrugiero said, they are traditionally project developers.

Shouldn't it be announced on ros-general, ros-announce, etc?

In 2006 there were two mentors. How long did they stay around after that? How well did their projects do? From looking at these forums, do any obvious mentors come to the fore? People (incl, foremost, prospective students) will be looking at these forums and asking the same question.

Yes
For any inquiries, additional ideas or suggestions, please mail one of our two mentors:

* Aleksey Bragin (aleksey [at] reactos [dot] org)
* Alex Ionescu (alex [dot] ionescu [at] reactos [dot] org)
Any update?

... and I hate to bang you on the head with a clue tip but Aleksey Bragin *wasn't* one of the two mentors in 2006.

Mentors ~= Teachers... Mentors are generally people already in the project. A list of mentors is already prepared here: http://www.reactos.org/wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code

What ReactOS needs now are the *Students* :)

Thank you. From what it written, the one was "progressing very well", but unfortunately there is no final report on the wiki page, one was considered by Google "unsatisfactory and has unlisted it", one was considered "abandoned" by Google and the status of the last one is unknown. This may partially explain why Google was reluctant to include ROS in subsequent years.

Yes, mjmartin for USB, Colin Finck for ATA, and so on. One will also notice that almost every thread about ROS development suggest joining the IRC channel.

I don't see any problem with that. A captain of a ship does not have to supervise the work of every sailor. ;)
