Do we have small sized projects / ideas ready to be submitted for GSOC?

our community as possible to consider it - it will hopefully help wth the next generation
of people excited to work on cloudstack

Did this for the Ceph project. It is a lot of work.

> 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 software 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 as
soon as possible but by no later than 2017-02-09:
> 1. understand what it means to be a mentor [2].
> 2. record your project ideas.
> Just create issues in JIRA, label them with gsoc2017, and they will show up at [3]. Please
be as specific as possible when describing your idea. Include the programming language, the
tools and skills required, but try not to scare potential students away. They are supposed
to learn what's required before the program starts.
> Use labels, e.g. for the programming language (java, c, c++, erlang, python, brainfuck,
...) or technology area (cloud, xml, web, foo, bar, ...) and record them at [5].
> Please use the COMDEV JIRA project for recording your ideas if your project doesn't use
JIRA (e.g.
> httpd, ooo). Contact if you need assistance.
> [4] contains some additional information (will be updated for 2017 shortly).
> 3. subscribe to; restricted to potential mentors, meant
to be used as a private list - general discussions on the public
list as much as possible please). Use a recognized address when subscribing ( or
one of your alias addresses on record).
> Note that the ASF isn't accepted as a participating organization yet, nevertheless you
*have to* start recording your ideas now or we will not get accepted.
> Over the years we were able to complete hundreds of projects successfully. Some of our
prior students are active contributors now! Let's make this year a success again!
> Cheers,

be shared publicly if you want to.
