Meeting Minutes for August 19, 2012

This was the last official meeting of this GSoC term.

The hard pencils down deadline is August 20th, 19:00 UTC, so all code submitted for review until then will be taken into consideration for evaluations. Any leftover polish for the projects are totally welcome after the cutoff, though.

There are no blockers for Steve or Bogdana.

The post-mortem meeting is scheduled for Saturday, August 25th, same time as the regular meetings. This will be an opportunity for the mentors to receive feedback as well. More consistent feedback for participants will be expected after the final results are announced on the 27th.
