Do you inform students if there are more than one student want to work 
on the same topic so that changing or choose multiple GSoC projects?
Would you give not choosen students the oppertunity to change the 
project if rejected so the participation for GSoC would not get void?
Would you accept one student working on multiple GSoC projects?

Sorry for that by these question just arised by your mail and I think 
they are not part of the FAQ.
