How many formal applications has the WikiMedia foundation received? Just curious. 216.218.134.10 15:07, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

Are there any reasons that we would not benefit by requiring that recommendations for exclusion on the grounds that a project is too hard or too easy be accompanied by specific reasons for saying so, supported by actual empirical evidence instead of just mentors' opinions?

I would also like to encourage mentors to express both a textual opinion along with a numeric score on as many proposals as possible. Can we agree on a minimum acceptable proportion? I personally will try for all of them, and I'm sure I'll be able to cover 75%.

Robla told me that I was not allowed to mentor because he was unhappy with my critique of how the program was handled last year. I will try again, both to increase the effectiveness of my criticism, and as a mentor next year.

What is the status of the WYSIWTF/WYSIFTW WYSIWYG editor which was being discussed on wikitech-l and wikitext-l around January and February? Would it work as a GSOC project?
