The criteria I have used to do the global ranking is:

- To follow the local ranking of the different participating projects,
  as indicated by the maintainers.

- To have a first group of proposals (ranked 1 to 7 above) with
  representation of all paticipating programs.  This will increase the
  odds that all programs will be getting slots.

- To then have a second group of proposals (ranked 8 to 10 above) with
  extra projects per participating program.

- Since I am doing the global ranking as the org admin, the two ranked
  proposals for my own program (GNU poke) are at the bottom of these
  blocks (positions 7 and 10.)

Please review the details of the proposals in the system, and get back
to me by replying to the thread if there are mistakes and/or changes to
do.  There is still time to add new mentors or do other fixes.

NOTE1: I will not consider suggestions to increase the ranking position
       of your proposals.  However, I will consider suggestions to
       _decrease_ the ranking position of some particular proposal if
       the suggestion comes from a representative of the corresponding
       program.  So if you think that a proposal X that is ranked below
       your own proposal is more important than your own proposal,
       please speak up now and I will do the necessary adjustments.

NOTE2: We can do changes to the ranking up to tomorrow (27 April) at
       12:00 GMT.  After that, alea iacta est.

This list looks good to me.  Thank you for including LilyPond.
