Unknown at this time.  The process in past years has been:
1. Students submit applications
2. Sometime before the end of application review process, we request a
number of students that we would like
3. Google decides how many students to allocate to us, either the
number we requested or possibly less

In past years I think we've always gotten as many slots as we've requested.

Fellow developers: How many slots do you think we should request this
year?  Maybe 5?  (feel free to respond privately, or publicly,
whatever)  I'm not sure who is able to mentor this year.
