So far I'm quite pleased by quality of GSoC applications we receive for phpMyAdmin. Tightening our applicant guide seems to be good idea and getting people active early and discuss the proposals seems to filter out the bad ones.
This also means that we will probably receive much less applications than last year. We've received 64 last year and we're not yet at half of the count, while only three days are left for students to submit their proposals.
Anyway take this as friendly reminder that not much time is left, especially if you want to receive some feedback for adjusting missing bits in the proposal.
