Thanks Olly for sharing the figures.

Going by the stats, *just for fun*, comparing Xapian to the general GSoC
average, last year out of GSoC's overall 5651 proposals, 1115 were
selected, that is, 1 in 5. On the other hand, for Xapian, out of 42
proposals, 4 were selected: 1 in 10. [The stats doesn't involve students
submitting multiple proposals and other such details...]
*Verdict:* Its tougher to get into Xapian!

Also, this year some 6685 proposals were submitted to 180 organizations,
averaging 37 proposals per organization. We have 41! *Verdict:* Xapian's
clearly avg+.

I am sure these stats don't matter at all and these comparisons don't mean
anything, but still I feel happy whenever I see *"avg+"* : be it academic
performance(very rarely! ;) ) or anywhere else.
