> Hello PMCs (incubator Mentors, please forward this email to your podlings),
> Google Summer of Code [1] is a program sponsored by Google allowing students to spend
their summer
> working on open source software. Students will receive stipends for developing open source
> full-time for three months. Projects will provide mentoring and project ideas, and in
return have
> the chance to get new code developed and - most importantly - to identify and bring in
new committers.
> The ASF will apply as a participating organization meaning individual projects don't
have to apply
> separately.
> If you want to participate with your project we ask you to do the following things by
no later than
> 2015-02-13 19:00 UTC (applications from organizations close a week later)
> 1. understand what it means to be a mentor [2].
> 2. record your project ideas.
> Just create issues in JIRA, label them with gsoc2015, and they will show up at [3]. Please
be as

tools and

> Use labels, e.g. for the programming language (java, c, c++, erlang, python, brainfuck,
...) or

> Please use the COMDEV JIRA project for recording your ideas if your project doesn't use
JIRA (e.g.

*have to*
