Hi all, here it is:

Candidate mentors are welcomed to describe the tasks they wish to
mentor on the wiki.

Application deadline is on 15th of July (the next Friday), so please
do it before that date (and possibly before, so we get a chance to
review the proposals before sending the application).

You should ask Mike Melanson in case you need an account for editing
the wiki.
