Personally, I treat it as any software EULA. Just click and be done with
it. Happy-go-lucky, and not worry about any doomsday consequences.

As Ben mentioned, he is co-admin this year. But all of the official
mentors for a project have privileges to view the student apps, comment
on them in public and private, and rank them. Plus, the more registered
mentors we have, the more potential project slots we might be eligible for.
