As can be seen by the ignored proposals I already did an initial round of
proposal reviews (right now we have just the ones left with a proper
proposal). Now it would help especially for the projects with more than one
proposal if the potential mentors of the corresponding proposals could
leave a comment whether they are happy with the proposals. I will use that
to mark the ones that have been sorted out by the mentors also as ignored
and come up with a final list of projects.

I will check the list and see how many projects we have and most likely
after talking with Thorsten during the hackfest propose a minimum and
maximum number of slots that we want to request. A full ranking of
proposals is not necessary yet.
