I've invited Joao to the webapp and approved the list subscription and
post, and answered a bit there. However, since Joao and the student
are both new to KDE, I would like to ask another experienced KDE
mentor to step up to co-mentor this task.

If you are not already invited to the webapp, please send me your
google-connected account, and sub to KDE-Soc-Mentor ML.

We always like to have co-mentors for GSoC, but I think it is
mandatory for this proposal.
