I'm inclined to agree.  Most of the SoC projects have been ignored by the 
students since the conclusion of the program.  Some, such as the Live CD 
project started by Darko, continue.  Darko has kept in touch with the project 
and his absence was anticipated and is related to his school.  He is likely 
to return.  We have recently lost contact with pootypedia's author, and other 
projects have met similar fates.  All is not lost, but it is a little 
disappointing.  I was close to one of the projects, and have been horribly 
disappointed in its author's actions since the end of the program.  We might 
have had better luck had the Mentors program been alive and well to engage 
more of the students.  Let's make that a guiding thought for the future.
