There must be a list of projects with descriptions and mentors with
gsoc accounts for each of them.The projects and their descriptions
from last year are, I think, still available at gretl wiki. There has
to be someone overseeing the whole thing and he makes the formal
application by filling out some forms. I can send and odt file (which
hopefully is not lost) that has most of the info that I entered last
year. This probably also has the mentor account names for Allin, Jack,
me etc, which I don't think has expired. Overall, I think it should
not be too difficult to reapply with the exact same projects, under
new management :-)

proposal or what? I simply have no idea.
