Tomorrow the application evaluation process will start, and we still
have only two mentored tasks.

As already said, the chance of the application approval much depends
on the quality and on the number of proposed tasks, so please add and
entry in in that page if you feel like you want to mentor a project,
and do it *as soon as possible*.

Note also that mentors from other multimedia projects are welcome
(VLAN, MPlayer, GStreamer, you name it) so contact us on IRC or in
this list if you want to mentor an FFmpeg task which is of interest
to your project.

What does it take to mentor a task? It usually requires around 5 hours
per week, you may need to chat on IRC with your students and review
and comment patches and RFCs. 

For more info check the rest of the FAQ.

Busy people can establish a quota for the time dedicated to their
student, the student is supposed to be mature enough to be able to
work as independently as possible, usually working on his/her git repo
and sending patches from time to time to the main development mailing
