Subject: [boost] [gsoc][gsoc19] Communication between students and mentors

Are there any guidelines related to communication between
students and mentors during GSoC?

Many participating organisations and projects do explicitly recommend
that student/mentor communication is conducted via public channels.

Note: With regards to the communication culture in the Moodle project:
We always prefer
transparent communication in public forums and tracker comments over
private messages and
emails. Please respect this and avoid contacting GSOC admins and
mentors directly unless
you really need to talk about something sensitive or personal.

or at least regular/weekly reports to dedicated and project-specific list

Would it be possible to ask for similar transparent mode during Boost GSoC?

I do realise one challenge is that Boost mailing list traffic could
increase a lot,
too much for some subscribers. Perhaps a solution to that could be setting up
dedicated lists: gsoc_at_[hidden] or even <library>
