In a paper I wrote about the experience with GSoC 06:

I propose something similar, informal reviews to be held by the end
of the official GSoC period. As you, I think most projects will need to
extend well past GSoC deadlines, which is not a bad thing if people
know in advance. As I see it, there is no need to bump projects in
the review queue, since informal reviews need not interfere with
the formal procedure.

Work is supposed to be done on an individual basis during
GSoC --after that, no further restrictions apply and more people could
join the project.
