It should be 5 hours per week and per student minimum. I think for a
good mentoring this might not always be enough, though it's sometimes
hard to reach even that.
Think I was trying to mentor 7 students in the first year.

That said, I filled out a registration form for gsoc 09 after quite some
people showed interest in helping out. If we do this, we should make
sure the students get a good time and all the help they need to do stuff.
