One of the problem we have is students dissappearing after the SOC period
ends (all the projects have this to some extent). That's why I suggested
earlier that we focus some of our projects on patches/extensions to other
libraries, so the library maintainer can pick up the patches and run with
them as they see fit.
I'm still hoping to see more of last years output up for review though,
there's some good stuff in there....
