You're probably right, but I'd like to avoid using word "develop" twice. Other options are a "community of programmers and animators focused on developing Synfig" or a "community of developers and animators working on Synfig.
I see now. I haven't noticed two similar words. ^_^"
Other option is "coders", but it sounds like slang.
My suggestion is to leave with "developers".
I suggest keeping your version of the answers, but make a revision such as the following:
What is your plan for dealing with disappearing students?
We ask students to provide their email and phone number to the project administrator. Our mentors will maintain regular contact with students throughout the summer and let them know that we are always available to answer questions and provide guidance. If a student disappears without notice, the mentor will contact him/her via email to clarify the situation. If there is no reply within 3 days, the administrator will phone him/her personally. If the student cannot be reached, the administrator will contact Google and report the situation.
I like this one.
Before we submit, I'd like to do a last round of proofreading/spell-check and also make sure that our Ideas page and Application Template are correct.
OK, I will wait for your edits.
My suggestions there are:
A good page should provide a short description of each idea, conveniently in one place. The links should be for additional/detailed information only
The purpose of the Tasks section was to inform applicants that they should introduce themselves to us and be able to compile the code before they apply. (See answer to the question about how we will retain students). Otherwise we may receive an application from a student we have never even talked to, who filled out the form and thought no other action was required. I pretty much copied that section from the Inkscape application form -- but I agree that it probably needs to be presented in a more suitable manner.
Good for Ideas page.
I think it's ok to go without Tasks section. Student can apply, but that doesn't mean that he is approved.
According to timeline
6-20 Apr: Mentoring organizations review and rank student proposals; where necessary, mentoring organizations may request further proposal detail from the student applicant.
So we will have enough time to compile/prepare/review student. And acceptance decision is taken by mentoring organization (us).
