Now that the participants of Google-Summer-of-Code (2015) and Outreachy-Round-10 have been announced, we should leave there only the tasks related to accepted projects and the organization of the programs.
Don't get lost in the vocabulary :)
- Proposals not accepted of projects accepted could be merged to the proposal that has been accepted. The idea is that from all the candidates one has been selected, therefore now the rest are duplicates.
- Proposals not accepted of projects not accepted could be merged to... the initial project idea? Maybe after asking the candidates whether they want to go ahead with the project (most probably not, but asking doesn't hurt). If a declined candidate wants to re-take the proposal in a future round, reopening the task will be easy.
- Project ideas without any accepted project could be left in Possible-Tech-Projects only.
What do you think?
