The body of potential mentors selects the winning proposals, too, so
at that time we'll negotiate how that pairing works -- it's not
(solely) up to me.  So you can divide that mentorship up however you'd
like - maybe one doing technical advising and code review and the
other keeping up the weekly communication, or switching off sometime
during the summer, or whatever seems best.
