I just wanted this info on your radar, no action is needed yet. I reached
out to Carol from Google and supported her on list. Also I introduced
myself from the board in case she needs anything else from us in the future.

 Hi Jim,

thanks a lot for the info.
As you wrote "just FYI", I assume this is currently under control by our
GSoC team and ops team.
GSoC is a great initiative to bring students into security and I would not
want to see this jeopardised because of misbehaviour of some of our

Please let us know if this requires board attention or any support or help
I might be able to provide.

Aloha, Tobias

 No, we can't drop the subject. If you're going to have a bad attitude on
this list and particularly with your students, that's not okay with me. If
you'd prefer not to participate in this program I am more than happy to
coordinate with your org admins to have you removed from this program, this
list, and from your duties. This is program that's about helping introduce
new people to FOSS, to coordinate with people all over the world in a
vibrant community that spans generations, timezones, and language barriers.

 If you want to be a sourpuss, that's fine. Do that on your own time in
your own house without involving the people on this list or, more
importantly, the students in this program.

 I'll email you and your org admins separately to speak further about this.
