Just to be clear here, you meant that the centos-gsoc[1] list was going
to be used for the GSoC specific content and the gsocadmin[2] list was
for the adminstration stuff right ? Thats what we say on the wiki
pages[3] and thats my understanding on how things are setup.

Lets not move the gsoc specific content to centos-devel if we dont need to.

The wiki also talks about a centos-gsoc-mentors at centos.org list, which
does not exist. And I dont see any requests for it, do we want to skip
that and just use the gsocadmin list for the same scope instead ?

I'm also going to start reaching out to all the mentors to make sure we
have scope and integration points consolidated for all the efforts that
ramp up, and make sure we're all integrating, deliverying code etc in a
single process ( and finally, make sure that the work scope is relevant
for a 3 month dev cycle ).
