>>> I suggest to rephrase as "In addition to the deadlines imposed by

>> How about this :
>> "In addition to the Google deadline for the submission of your project
>> proposal/application, the deadline for submitting your patch(es) is a
>> week later (see GSoC timeline below). We will evaluate student patches
>> as part of our student ranking process."
> Fine by me.
