    v41 v42  
    4141  - People skills: getting along with others and resolving conflicts. This includes helping new users (which, according to us, indicates a willingness to help GSoC students as well)
    4242 1. What is your plan for dealing with disappearing students?[[BR]]
    43  Try to contact them via mail(or even phone maybe?)
     43 First of all, we'll try to avoid having students disappear, by keeping regular contact and trying to help them solve any problems they encounter. In the event a student should disappear, we will make sure we have their contact information already, so we can easily contact them and persuade them to carry on with the project (possibly with extra guidance). We will also try to notice early on when a student is no longer motivated, by checking on the progress they're making.
    4444 1. What is your plan for dealing with disappearing mentors?[[BR]]
    45  Try to contact them? If necessary, another mentor might take over the work.
     45 The mentors are all long-time I2P community members, and, as such, not very likely to leave the project. If they do, we will try to contact them. If this is not possible, another mentor will take over their work (or we can perhaps divide the work between two other mentors).
    4646 1. What steps will you take to encourage students to interact with your project's community before, during and after the program?[[BR]]
    4747 Communication on IRC and the forum to get to know people, setting up I2P and an I2P website (possibly with help on IRC).
    4848 1. What will you do to ensure that your accepted students stick with the project after GSoC concludes?[[BR]]
    49  The interaction with the community, as well as interesting new project ideas being available.
     49 I2P is a project that has a lot of different topics to work on. This should ensure that any student can either build on what they've accomplished over the summer, or can shift their attention to an entirely new project inside (or on top of) I2P.
     50 We will try to keep interaction with the students to a high level, which should also keep motivation and 'community feeling' up.
