Perhaps I should have done that, however, quite a few edits have been done now.

So let us say - if you or your team posted an idea last year, please
remove or update it. If your team will be participating, please get
your ideas up now.

Feb. 20 is the deadline for org applications, and we don't want to be
scrambling at the last minute. If you plan to mentor, now is the time
to ensure that you are subscribed to KDE-Soc-Mentor list.[1]

All the best,
