Boost is considered the org, projects can have a global scope or be
restricted to a particular library.

Everyone registered before April 23 is considered potential, final are
not chosen until we are acepted, projects are acepted, documentors are
accepted, and we assign the mentors to them. However, if you
considering to be a mentor, then it is better to register before 23rd.

Yeap, I think it is because they don't overlap much with GSOC in case
mentors of one want to participate in the other.
