As others have pointed out, and I believe you acknowledge (q.v., "I am not
avoiding the truth that we suck during the last three years"), there are
better and necessary ways to address this issue.  And we've worked with
Google every year during the Summer of Code, so we're not exactly
inexperienced working with students.

Incorporate all of the feedback you're getting from folks.  It is urgent
that you take the advice, get all of the current code into source control
ASAP, get students onto the mailing list now, start doing discussion and
coding in public, and submit changes on a regular basis via SVN and/or JIRA.
These are the same things you've also read from Christian and Upayavira.
You don't need a new Mentor to do those things.  Demonstrate change and
we'll try to help you succeed.
