http://permalink.gmane.org – Hiya GNOME lovers! It's that time of the year again: Google's Summer of Code is approaching. We are in the midst of preparing it all [1] but we need your help by submitting great project ideas. Student proposals will start to roll in on March 29, but we'd like to make sure there are plenty of projects from them to choose from and have mentors ready to volunteer their time. So what should you do? Please visit [2] and enter your project ideas under the "New Untriaged Ideas" section. A committee will be formed up later to triage the ideas prior to the opening of the proposal period. If you would like to volunteer your time to mentor but don't have a project idea, surf over and claim one. Mentoring is an awesome way to get more involved with the community and introduce someone to it. If you would like to throw your hat in the ring for the triaging or selection committees and other GSoC related tasks, pop on over to #soc-admin, join the soc-mentors-list and let one of the administrators for the program know you want to be involved in making GNOME rock. This year's administrators are Ruben Vermeersch, Christophe Fergeau and Daniel Siegel (and Sandy Armstrong, for as long as his time doesn't get stolen by the upcoming kid :-)) Cheers, The GNOME Google Summer of Code Administrators [1] http://live.gnome.org/SummerOfCode2010 [2] http://live.gnome.org/SummerOfCode2010/Ideas (Software)
