I hope in next year there will be more than 7 slots available for
Boost. Congratulations to all who made it!

A bunch of questions that will soon arise:

* What is the preferred method for communications between student and
mentors? Shall it be private mails, or writing to Boost mailing list
with "[boost] [gsoc] [`project name`] " header is better?

* Is there a "Recommendations" wiki page for students? Something like:
recommended structure of the project is /boost/`project name` for
header files and boost/libs/`project name` for other files. Write
documentation using Quickbook.
