The process for requesting GSoC contributor slots has changed a bit. More details:
One of the admin guides says:
"Example: Your org received 6 excellent proposals and mentors have committed to mentoring all 6. You will need to decide the priority of the projects. If your org asks for 6 project slots and Google only gives your org 4 slots, then #1-#4 will automatically become your accepted GSoC contributors. You can not decide later that you would rather have the person that was #6 in your ranking."
The new process expects organizations to develop their own process for deciding priorities of projects/ranking proposals outside the GSoC app and indicating slot requests later in the app accordingly. Google has advised that we only rank the projects we really want, and in case of a conflict with another organization, they will reach out before finalizing slots.
This task is about designing a rubric for ranking GSoC proposals and documenting it on "GSoC/Administrators" and "GSoC/Mentors" guides on MediaWiki.org.
