GSoC Students and Mentors,
The Midtem evaluation period has begun, and will close in less than a

planned work for the first half of the program.
If you haven't been checking in with your mentor, participating in IRC

everyone productive and engaged. We're all in this together.
Good Luck, and Happy Hacking,
Thanks for the heads up ;)
