As is the case every year, the most critical part of an application is the org's ideas page. We'd love additional fleshed-out contributions for that. Since we had a little confusion on this last year, please note that we're looking specifically for well-developed ideas that would be good summer-sized projects for new contributors, from folks willing to mentor those projects (rather than "it'd be neat if someone would do X"); see the existing ideas page for examples (some of which are more developed than others, certainly!). > > If you're interested in mentoring, please let me know! Bringing your own project idea is great, but we can also use more experienced, eager folks to pair up with new contributors on other projects. > > We've got an overview page, and all the program details are on Google's GSoC page, and you might be interested in the program timeline in particular. > > One other note, for those of you who're familiar with the program, there are a few notable changes, which Google goes into in a post about them.

It may be worth trying to carry that forward. ------------------------------------------ 9fans: 9fans Permalink: https://9fans.topicbox.com/groups/9fans/Td4449edc4863e16e-Mface259247e81fb72187850d Delivery options: https://9fans.topicbox.com/groups/9fans/subscription
