Hi all

Is there anyone who wants to be (backup) admin for GSoC 2016 ?
also the GSoC page on the wiki needs to be put into shape for it

Stefano, Reynaldo, you did it last year IIRC, are you available again ?
someone else ?

we should ideally have at least 3 admins

Rewriting code that is poorly written but fully understood is good.
Rewriting code that one doesnt understand is a sign that one is less smart
