Because I am working with MHST for the second year as a mentor/admin
so I'd say joining it is too easy (and much looser than Gsoc)

As for the regulation of MHST,
I propose that I will firstly register LibO team as a mentor; and I will 
take care
of the Vietnam side.

Some important deadlines:

2011/04/30: Deadline for mentor's (and his/her ideas) registration.
2011/05/01 - 2011/05/29: (team of) students' proposal registration
2011/05/30 - 2011/06/05: Announce the list of selected teams and students
2011/06/06 - 2011/09/04: Coding :)

Yes, that's what I have planned.
The developers are the mentors and I step back as the one who fill the 
gaps between
the developers and the students.

Don't worry, I've talked to other MHST admins and they have given us a +1.

I didn't know that :) Anyway, the deadline for picking an idea is 2011/04/30

I see. Probably you have to fill some more programming tasks.

My concern is, can we allocate the right developer as the mentor for a 
programming task?

Please feel free to ask if you have any questions.
