We had 16 applications, total.  Drupal had 73.  That means we're  
getting a much higher percentage of slots funded, I was very surprised  
to get 7 slots, as that's what I asked for, I was expecting that to  
drop down to 4/5.

7 is pretty much at our limit for mentoring at the moment, we don't  
have enough people to mentor more, we don't have the visibility to  
university students, etc.

I'm very happy with what we've got, although I'd love us to be a  
bigger presence in summer of code we can't do that without more,  
better proposals, and more people willing to mentor.
