Hello Thiago,

I tried to clarify things with my mail. It was a bit of a chance that we got 
in at all, we got the name wrong and probably a ton of other things.
All taken into account, I think it's actually pretty great that we got in and 
I'd rather we prove now that Qt is something students should work on than 
dwell on our beginner mistakes.
I assure you there was no bad intent, just a complete lack of coordination. I 
learned that we had applied the same day I sent the mail.

As mentioned, it was a mistake, coordination and such... I mentioned this at 
the end of my original mail.
https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/organizations/5388456415461376/ is now 
fixed. Please don't let this stop you from getting involved.

Yes, please do contribute now. There is nothing preventing us from getting a 
great ideas page in place, actually that's currently our main focus, getting 
the page polished and filled with interesting projects. Everyone can add to the 
page, so please do.
