+
+GSoC is underway with two experienced admins and a newcomer learning the ropes.
+
+Googles insistence on changing the process on the fly without consulting orgs continues to

+frustrate admins who have to adapt quickly and communicate this to our 150+ projects. Our
thanks go to

+
+We have 41 projects spread across 26 projects (17 TLPs and 9 Podlings).

some aspects

however, it was

+The women@a.o mailing list has been closed and an autoresponder inviting
 people to post to dev@community.a.o has been set up. The vote to merge the
 women@a.o list was passed unaminously. One, previously unknown, community
 member voted -1 (non-binding). However, the owners of the women@.a.o list
 reassured the ComDev PMC that the list had been largely unsuccesful in
 meeting the  defined objectives and welcomed the opportunity to work with
 the ComDev PMC in ensuring that the successes of women in the ASF are duly
-recognised. </p>

+Interest is growing in the mentoring programme with a number of enquiries
 to the development list. Ross Gardler reports that there will be between 10
 and 40 students approaching the ASF for mentoring as part of their formal
-education in September. The draft process is already <a href="http://community.apache.org/mentoringprogramme.html">defined</a>

+There was one appeal from a GSoC student that failed in the mid-term
 evaluation. This was examined by both Google and the ASF admins. It was
 felt the mentors decision was fair and that our selection process was not
 at fault. A minor tweak relating to the communication of our expectations
 to the students has been implemented. Full details can be reviewed at
