Just surfacing after getting swamped on my real job for the last week. I didn't realize that listing Brendan as backup admin didn't actually do anything in Melange AFAICT, and I don't see any way to "activate" him or approve other project members as GSoC admins for our project.
I just approved Pere's and Brendan's mentor requests. Anyone else who is going to mentor (which includes ranking student proposals) needs to put in a request.
The proposal ranking period started yesterday, so I apologize that we missed the first day of it, but we still have almost two weeks left.
I'm going to be tied up the next few hours, but should be "back in circulation" from here on out.
