Hi Jeff,

Although the effect of the GSoC applications does effect this, this is  
not just for this month, but rather it is an ongoing thing. This has  
been occuring increasingly, however, which is why I bring it up now.

Also, the reason I phrased my message the way I did was in order to  
not single out one person in particular. If anyone is really that  
curious, there are statistics easily available on this list's traffic.
