Hi Armin,

for now it is enough for you to know that someone is willing to mentor
your chosen topic. As you chose a topic from our ready-made list that
already lists the people willing to mentor the topics, you're fine.

If the topic had only one possible mentor listed, or none, then you'd
have to ask around. It is good to have a backup mentor too.

Final mentor assignments happen when it's time for the organization
admins to make the decisions on which projects get accepted. Mentors
pick you, you don't pick them. You can only ask that there will be
someone to pick you.

If you need help before that, or just for reviewing your application
before submitting it, you can ask anyone. Naturally the listed
possible mentors are likely victims. ;-)
