Yeah, that was a seriously disfunctional Summer of Code project. In that 
case I did encourage communication very much from our end. Those 
checkins were some form unilateral "week after the deadline" rescue 
effort on the student's part so that he'd get paid. Whether he got away 
with it I don't know, as the PSF was in charge of that project in the end.

This shows that even if you have people on top of things (I saw the 
danger signals in this project *way* ahead of time) it still can go 
wrong. :)
