[OSM-dev] [GSoC] Mentors requirements

I am pondering that right now. On one hand I would prefer to see a mentor be
someone that is familiar with the OSM project and can give advice and
feedback about how to work with the OSM community and its tools, but on the
other hand I am excited to see completely unrelated and new people
contribute to OSM.

Currently I'm leaning towards allowing external mentor/student pairs *as
long as they participate with the GSoC process completely*. I would be much
more inclined to accept a student or mentor with no previous work in the OSM
community if they provided a thorough plan for how they would integrate
their work into the existing OSM community and continue to participate in
OSM after GSoC completed.
