How are these student projects working out?
Is there anything we can do to help?

(There is no need to identify the students, unless they want to be named
on a public mailing list.)

Have the students tried small patches?
How did they go?

Here's how your students (or you) can find tickets and get help with patches:

>>> Our bug tracker is:
>>> https://trac.torproject.org/
>>> We are also in #tor-dev IRC on irc.oftc.net.

It might be worth reminding your students that replies on IRC can take hours.
Some people are disappointed when they don't get an instant reply.

>>> Please ask questions early, and ask often!
>>> We would love to help you help tor.
