It seems like you're lacking active mentors. Any volunteers to help VXQuery?

OK. A big part of GSoC is giving students a chance to interact and
work with an open source community, so I think it would be good if
there was at least some ongoing activity beyond or in addition to the
GSoC projects.

ComDev people, is there anything you think you could/should do to help
