I will ask Cat to specify this, indeed it's not really clear, however
they seem to keep existing because GNU applied this year as well.

My ideal organisation workflow would be the following:

1. GB grants privileges :)
2. Adoption takes charges of the project and handling of the GSoC
program on behalf of GB
2a. Adoption decides tasks and project proposals (they may come from
students too), reviews students and follow accepted projects
3. if any of the projects complete successfully, and is applicable,
Adoption start the necessary arrangement in order to merge or "upstream"
the selected projects. Of course, this will then go the usual way.

What do you think?
