the question is, do you have projects to be part of GSoC Gilad ?

If true, send me the title of the project, a description and if possible,
titles as "Technical Details", "Benefits to the Student" and "Benefits to
the Community".

The deadline is....2 or 3 days :)

Ahh each project needs a mentor. Those projects without mentors will be
discarded. The same mentor cannot be in more than one project.
