My experience is that having a mentor greatly helps students. Of course,
interaction with the rest of the community is still encouraged, but it's
hard for inexperienced students to find their way in a large community
without individual help.

You may see our school project like a mini-Google summer of code. GSoC
mentors do not replace the community, but they are definitely very helpful.
