Please do not promise students anything. It is bad for several reasons:
* We don't even know yet if KDE will be accepted as a mentoring org.
* If we are going to be accepted we don't yet know how many slots KDE
will get and how they will be distributed.
* We want as many excellent students to apply as possible. Everyone
has the same chances. We don't tell anyone no before Google announces
the official selection of students. Before that nothing is final.
