Potential GSoC students,

Looks like student applications may be open now (or shortly).

Got a proposal - feel free to post it here for review and comment if your want that. It is probably a good idea :wink:

We look forward to reading your proposals and having another successful year of working with students.

All the best to you and your proposals.

Hello all, and sorry for cross posting,

in little less than one hour (March 10th, 19:00 UTC) Google Summer of
Code students application period will open [0].
The application period closes in two weeks, on March 21st.

Here [1] is a link to all common questions on GSoC, that cover the
basics about the program and also specific questions on how to apply
and what are the requirements for students and mentors.

OSGeo homepage on Melange shows the application template [2] that
students shall use and will contain the direct link for application

Our suggestions to students are summarized as follows:

- check the eligibility requirements first (see the link to common
- get inspiration and info from the OSGeo Ideas wiki page [3]
- if you are new, introduce yourself to the developer team you wish to
- register on Melange and submit the application, even as draft, not
   later than next week. You are able to edit it or withdraw it anytime
   during the application period.

Interested students and mentors are welcome to ask for clarification on
the soc list soc@lists.osgeo.org or, if privacy is needed, to the
admins directly..

Let us remind that you don't need to already be an expert to take part
to GSoC - if you are unsure, just ask what are the required skills for
a given idea!
