The student already got into contact with me and it looks like he is motivated (he is already subscribed to several FreeBSD mailinglists, which is not a requirement we have in our GSoC docs).
Roman is slowly working on the *at() commands. He also applied for the GSoC this year again. Kib is willing to mentor (in case Roman gets a free seat in the SoC). I rejected the mentoring position this time, as I don’t know if I will have enough time this summer, but I hope I will be around.
