Plan it out in a way where one project isn't dependent on the other
project completing, or even being approved.  You may know each other
well, but if something catastrophic happens to one of you (a family
emergency, etc.) you don't want it to keep the other one from

The other aspect is that we only have so many slots given to us by
Google, and only so many mentors to go around.  Proposals go through a
ranking process and then the top rated items get picked - if for some
reason one makes the cut and the other doesn't, or we only have one
mentor qualified and interested in this topic, it'll be difficult.

I sincerely hope none of these things happen, but if you're going to
plan ahead, it's worth covering every possible outcome you can.
