I love this kind of ideas! but we need to checkout how to get that
project started.

No problem for me to co-mentor on the Writer side. I think we would
achieve better results if the other - vietnamese - mentor is a developer
and not just a translator, but maybe that's what you planned already.

Sure, you need to handle the MHST admin as we can't do it in vietnamese.
Feel free to ping either Fridrich, thorsten or myself if you have
questions as we all were GSoc admins at a point of time.

Sure, but don't go too quickly with the tasks from the GSoc as the
students aren't selected yet. It's better to tell the students to be
careful that some of  those projects may already have been picked. WRT
the EasyHacks, tasks are sorted by difficulty and students should pick
tasks in section 6 - Programming tasks.

Done :D

I wish we could launch a successful project with students in vietnam
thanks to you.
