I hope very much that KDevelop4 is in real alpha stage at the end of may
(i.e. somethings that at least the devs can use).

Thats simply a fact you have to calculate in your time schedule. Its not
like Google expects you to

a) work full-time on your GSoC project (though 20h/week are probably a
must on average)
b) miss your finals due to GSoC
c) achieve all goals you've set upfront

Specifically for c), its not expected that all GSoC students finish
their project completely in the timeline. And not fulfilling all goals
doesn't mean your project has failed, whats important is that you show
your interest in the project, get a decent amount of work done and try
to communicate when you have problems (both with your mentor as well as
the community of the project).

You may apply for multiple projects at once, if you get picked for more
than one organization usually you as a student have the choice (unless
one proposal is clearly not as good as the other(s)).

So to conclude: Yes I think you do have a chance of being accepted and
if nobody else can be found I think I can do the mentoring (given that I
currently get paid for working on test-related software).


You'd like to do it instantaneously, but that's too slow.
