You made an excellent catch. This morning, before coffee, I
multiplied US$6000 by 8 in my head and somehow came up with $54,000,
rather than $48,000 which is the correct amount. I should have used
Calc, I knew it then but I was in a rush. I'll correct the value next
GSoC reminder email.
To break that down as requested, last year $5,500 went to each
student, and $500 to each mentor, making $6000 per slot awarded, and
we received eight slots in 2014.
Apologies to everyone for the bad mental arithmetic.
