Fwd: Google Summer of Code 2010 is On......

Janko Mivšek
Hi guys!

Google Summer of Code (GSC) is approaching and we need to apply of
course. Big question is, how. As one, as three, as ten applicants?

I would rather not divide us too much for GSC so I propose to go as one,
but how? Because an organization/project needs to apply, not the
consortion of organizations ... Or there is maybe an exception?

Hello everyone,

Many of you were wondering if Google Summer of Code 2010 is on for
2010 and the answer is yes! We will begin accepting application from
would-be mentoring organizations beginning March 8th at approximately
19:00 UTC, with applications closing on March 12th at 23:00 UTC.
Students can apply between 19:00 UTC on March 29th to 19:00 UTC on
April 9th.

We will be updating the program website [0], including the FAQs [1],
over the next few days. Not much is going to change except the
timeline, though there are a few FAQs that will be added. If you have
any questions in the interim please do send them to the list. Please
note that questions about which project you should select, etc., will
likely be responded to with "depends on your skill set," so please
take the time to do some research [2] about which project is right for

While mentoring organizations for 2010 will be announced until March
18th, a great number of the projects that have participated in the
past [3] will return once again in 2010. Of course, that's not a
guarantee and we cannot accept every great project that applies. But
if you want to get a jump start on your participation in GSoC 2010,
considering lurking in the IRC channel of a past participating project
and seeing what useful things you can learn about their code base and
community. Check out project forums to see if it's a place you'd like
to spend your time.

I'll be sending a follow up message in a few minutes about what to
expect in the next few days/weeks and how you can help Google Summer
of Code 2010.

Google Summer of Code 2010 is on! Celebrate!
