So, anyone interested in mentoring Google Code-in tasks?
The tasks don't need to be necessarily Coding tasks, they can also be
UI, Documentation, or even Outreach.
The contest starts on Nov 18 and ends on Jan 5, so part of it will
overlap with your Christmas holidays (good thing/bad thing is up to
you :P).
