+third Wednesday of every month and thus projects due 
+to report need to have their reports ready no later than the second
+Wednesday of that month. This allows the board to pre-approve 
+reports where possible, thus making for a much shorter board meeting.</p>
+<p><em>This guide should be read in conjunction with

+<p>Reports need not be exhaustive, unless you are asking for assistance.
+Neither do they need any technical information since the 
+board are only interested in project health. At the end of this page there
+is a template for board reports. First we'll describe 
+how some projects manage their board report during the quarter, however,
+like most things in the ASF projects are free to manage 
+this process in any way they desire.</p>
+<ul>
+<li>Create a template of the report in project SVN or Wiki space (see below
+for draft template)</li>
+<li>Record relevant details on the report as they occur</li>
+<li>Review objectives for the community and act upon them</li>
+<li>Recieve reminder from "marvin" that the board report is due (usually on
+the first of the month)</li>
+<li>Update board report ready for submission</li>
+<li>Post mail to developer list asking for a review of the draft report</li>
+<li>Incorporate feedback from community</li>
+<li>PMC chair submits board report via board.at.apache.org with subject of "[REPORT](report.html)
+ project name" (copy to project private or dev list as appropriate)</li>

+
+<p>The Community Development is progressing well, although a little more

+<p>The planned mentoring project has still not been formally launched. Largely
+due to the loss of the labels module in JIRA which was previously used by
+projects to indicate issues appropriate for mentoring. An alernative will
+be put into place very soon.</p>
+<p>Work on a project to provide hosting for Apache related software projects
+is progressing. Legal documents have all been signed, draft usage
+guidelines and a FAQ are available and PMCs have been ocntacted to reserve
+projects names.</p>
+<p>We have taken ownership of party@ mailing list (no changes in usage are
+proposed)</p>
+<p>Google Summer of Code completed - thanks to all involved. It is noticable
+that once again we have failed to generate any press (we never produced a
+press release for press@)</p>
+<p>We applied for the Google Code-In (Google's contest to introduce
+pre-university students to the many kinds of contributions that make open
+source software development possible) but were, unfortunately,
+unsuccessful.</p>
+<p>Ross Gardler has spoken at a reasonably large number of events around

+Status report for the Apache Community Development Project
+
+Project Status
+--------------
+
+<p>The Community Development Project is starting to ramp up again after the
+Google Summer of Code efforts. We have merged the 
+women@a.o list into the dev@community.a.o and are commencing work on
+rolling out the mentoring program.</p>
+<p>No issues require board attention at this time.</p>
+<h2 id="community_2">Community</h2>
+<p>The women@a.o mailing list has been closed and an autoresponder inviting
+people to post to dev@community.a.o has been set up. The vote to merge the
+women@a.o list was passed unaminously. One, previously unknown, community
+member voted -1 (non-binding). However, the owners of the women@.a.o list
+reassured the ComDev PMC that the list had been largely unsuccesful in
+meeting the  defined objectives and welcomed the opportunity to work with
+the ComDev PMC in ensuring that the successes of women in the ASF are duly
+recognised. </p>
+<p>The local mentors program and local speakers program both continue to grow.
+We now have 53 local mentors, and 27 local speakers. If discussions on them
+on foundation-wide lists is anything to go by, they continue to be of use!</p>
+<p>Interest is growing in the mentoring programme with a number of enquiries
+to the development list. Ross Gardler reports that there will be between 10
+and 40 students approaching the ASF for mentoring as part of their formal
+education in September. The draft process is already <a href="http://community.apache.org/mentoringprogramme.html">defined</a>
+ and will be refined during August in consulation with interested PMCs.</p>
+<p>There was one appeal from a GSoC student that failed in the mid-term
+evaluation. This was examined by both Google and the ASF admins. It was
+felt the mentors decision was fair and that our selection process was not
+at fault. A minor tweak relating to the communication of our expectations
+to the students has been implemented. Full details can be reviewed at
+http://markmail.org/thread/dsn6v2dagrm5nv7q</p>
+<h2 id="objectives-for-next-period_2">Objectives for next period</h2>
+<ul>
+<li>Gain support from at least 5 PMCs for the mentoring programme</li>
+<li>Launch the mentoring programme in September (no press at this stage)

+http://community.zones.apache.org/ This is reasonably well populated via
+members@ and we expect to start pushing it to the wider community@ soon.</p>
+<h2 id="google-summer-of-code">Google Summer of Code</h2>
+<p>44 Students accepted, this will generate income of $22,000</p>
+<p>For the first time there were no major complaints about the selection
+process.</p>
+<p>Student work is underway.</p>
+<h2 id="mentoring-programme">Mentoring Programme</h2>
+<p>We had planned to roll out the mentoring programme after the GSoC
+selection process. However, this has not yet happened. Documentation is in
+place and a pilot is being run with a single student. However, we have not
+yet rolled it out across the ASF.</p>
+<p>A lack of volunteer time is the real block here, this is expected to be
+resolved in coming months (a day job project for one of the ComDev team
+relating to this activity commences in July)</p>
+<h2 id="the-apache-way">The Apache Way</h2>
+<p>Prompted by various discussions on members@ we started a community dev
+blog (http://blogs.apache.org/comdev/)</p>
+<p>This will be used to post useful pointers to existing resources and
+expertise.</p>
+<p>We are considering which activities discussed in the members@ threads can
+and should be implemented by comdev

+Status report for the Apache Community Development Project
+
+The community development project aims to help newcomers to The Apache
+Software Foundation take their first steps on their way to being a part of
+our community.
+
+<h2 id="issues-for-board-attention">Issues for board attention</h2>
+<p>GSoC invoicing process</p>
+<p>The ComDev PMC would like the board to evaluate the process for making
+claims for GSoC payments from Google. For the board's convenience, the
+process is currently:</p>
+<p>a) GSoC admin informs Google of total amount owing
+b) Google issue a PO
+c) GSoC admin liaises with ASF treasurer
+d) ASF issues an Invoice
+e) Google pays invoice</p>
+<p>At present the processes seems to get stuck at c). The GSoC admin is
+unaware
+of the issuing of an invoice for 2009 and we suspect other years may have
+been missed as well.</p>
+<p>This not only impacts ASF income but increases our costs since travel to
+the
+mentor summit is reimbursed through the same invoice.</p>
+<h2 id="main-items-to-report">Main items to report</h2>
+<ul>
+<li>

+<h3 id="applying_for_gsoc">Applying for GSoC</h3>
+<p>Student applications start on March 29th, 2010. However we encourage you to
+discuss you application with the project community before this date.</p>
+<p>In order to apply we ask that you create a list of deliverables,
+quantifiable results for the Apache community, a detailed description /
+design document, an approach, an approximate schedule and something of a
+background text. We also need you to let us know what other commitments you
+have for the period of GSoC, for example, do you have any exams or a part
+time job? In other words - sell yourselves, as if this was an actual job. </p>
+<p>In drawing up your proposal you should work with your chosen projects
+community. One of our evaluation criteria is that you have already engaged
+with the community to ensure that you understand the needs of the project
+and the commitment you need to make to your mentors.</p>
+<p>Once open applications are made through the <a href="http://socghop.appspot.com/">GSoC site</a></p>
+<p><a name="GSoC-ContactingtheASF"></a></p>
+<h2 id="contacting_the_asf">Contacting the ASF</h2>
+<p>The ASF is not just one project, it is a federation of projects, see the
+lists at http://apache.org/ and http://incubator.apache.org/. Each of our
+projects has its own community of users, contributors and committers. GSoC
+students will usually be interacting with just one of these communities. </p>
+<p>Each of the proposed subjects (link to be provided if we are confirmed as a
+mentoring organisation) applies to a single ASF project. You will need to
+engage with that project community.</p>
+<p><a name="GSoC-ProspectiveASFmentors:readthis"></a></p>
+<h1 id="prospective_asf_mentors_read_this">Prospective ASF mentors: read this</h1>
+<p>We are looking for as many interesting projects as we can come up with. For
+more info about mentoring, please read our <a href="guide-to-being-a-mentor.html">guide to being a mentor</a>
+.</p>
+<p>Prospective mentors should join the code-awards@apache.org mailing list,
+this is where mentor specific issues are dealt with, and where
+announcements will be made. If you want to track the programme
+administration you should subscribe to dev@community.apache.org.</p>
+<p>Once the ASF is confirmed as a mentoring organisation mentors must register
+with the GSoC webapp, and request to become a mentor for the ASF
+organization. Make sure that the email address you use for that (it's often
+your @gmail.com address by default) is '''registered in
+committers/MailAlias.txt''' so that we can match it to your ASF account.
+You should also register your '''GSoC Link Id to
+committers/GSoCLinkId.txt'''.</p>
+<p>All ASF projects are invited to submit their ideas to their issue tracker,
+please be sure to add the labels "gsoc" and "mentor" so that we can
+automatically include them in our list of subjects. If your project does
+not use JIRA please contact dev@community.apache.org.<br />

+<p>All ASF projects are invited to submit their ideas for consideration in the
+ASF mentoring programme. Any Apache member and experienced committers can
+submit ideas via JIRA (if your project does not use JIRA you can <a href="use-the-comdev-issue-tracker-for-gsoc-tasks.html">use the Comdev Issue Tracker For GSoC Tasks</a>
+. We are looking for as many interesting projects as we can come up with. </p>
+<p><a name="guidetobeingamentor-Summary"></a></p>
+<h2 id="summary">Summary</h2>
+<ul>
+<li>Add an issue to JIRA (if your project doesn't use JIRA contact
+dev@community.apache.org)
+** use sub-tasks if necessary</li>
+<li>Label the main issue with "mentor"</li>
+<li>Label the main issue with "gsoc" if appropriate</li>
+</ul>
+<p><a name="guidetobeingamentor-Detail"></a></p>
+<h2 id="detail">Detail</h2>
+<p>To ensure you JIRA issues are included in our list of mentored projects
+please add the label "mentor" to the issue. If you want it to be included
+in the Google Summer of Code lists also add the "gsoc" label. If you want
+to include a number of issues in a single mentored project please create a
+parent issue, label that one appropriately and add the other issues as
+sub-tasks, do not label each individual sub task as they will appear as
+separate tasks.</p>
+<p>If a mentor has been identified then please assign the issue to that
+mentor.</p>
+<p>ASF Members and committers can volunteer to mentor or co-mentor proposals.
+When in doubt about all this, contact code-awards@apache.org.</p>
+<p>For more information about what it means to be a mentor and on how to write
+a proposal see:

+<p>Note that interest, even by a qualified student, does not mean that any of
+those project will automatically go ahead. Depending on the number of
+projects; the number of people able to mentor and the timing we will
+probably have to make a smaller selection.</p>

+<p>All mentors <em>must</em> subscribe to code-awards@apache.org, our list for
+coordinating mentor activities. </p>
+<p>Subscriptions to code-awards will only be accepted from addresses known to
+belong to ASF committers, so please use your @apache.org address to
+subscribe if possible, or at least an address that can be matched to your
+@apache.org address via the ASF's private/committers/info or
+private/committers/MailAlias.txt data.</p>
+<p>If you are interested in the mentor programme administration please also
+subscribe to dev@community.apache.org.</p>
+<p>If you are planning on mentoring as part of the GSoC programme you also
+need to register with Google, see our <a href="gsoc.html">GSoC</a>
+ page for more information.</p>

+<h2 id="how_much_effort_is_involved_with_being_a_mentor">How much effort is involved with being a mentor</h2>
+<p>Most mentors spend between 3 and 5 hours per week with their students. Most
+of this time is spent encouraging them.</p>
+<p>Within the ASF we like to think that the whole project community will help
+the student just as they would with any other community member. If your
+project is supportive in this way then you may be able to get away with
+less time. However, as mentor <em>you</em> are responsible for evaluating the
+student and helping them deliver on their commitments.</p>
+<p>The <a href="http://en.flossmanuals.net/GSoCMentoringGuide">GSoC Mentoring Guide</a>
+ has plenty of useful materials for mentors.</p>
+<p><a name="guidetobeingamentor-Anoteabouteligibility"></a></p>
+<h2 id="a_note_about_eligibility">A note about eligibility</h2>
+<p>If your project has any restrictions on who can participate (as is the case
+with Harmony for example) please be sure to clarify these with potential
+students as early as possible. It causes unnecessary confusion and
+dissapointment if a student is awarded a slot but is later found to be
+ineligible. Don't rely on the fact that the student should have read
+details on the project web site. You must discuss their eligibility before
+offering to mentor them. Please also make a note in the webapp stating that
+you have, as far as possible, confirmed the student is eligble to
+contribute.</p>

+their way to being a <em>part of our community</em>. We do not focus on any
+specific projects here, we focus on the common structures and processes you
+will find in the majority of ASF projects. Our goal is to help you
+<em>understand how the ASF works</em> and give you the confidence to participate
+more directly.</p>
+<p><a name="Index-Seekingassistance"></a></p>
+<h1 id="seeking_assistance">Seeking assistance</h1>
+<p>The first rule of engaging with an open source project, not just those here
+in the ASF, is to <em>research first, ask questions second</em>. Therefore, please
+review the materials we have on this site (which admittedly are thin on the
+ground at this early stage). If you don't find what you need then ask for
+assistance on our mailing list at 
+<a href="mailto:dev@community.apache.org">dev@community.apache.org</a> (first

+<p>This project is at a very early stage, other than the mailing list

+<p>The second rule of engaging with open source projects, especially those in
+the ASF, is that <em>the more you give the more you get</em>. Most people assume
+that newcomers are unable to contribute, however, you will be surprised at
+how much you can help. Since we aim to be a place for newcomers to learn
+about the ASF as a whole and you are (probably) a newcomer <em>any feedback
+you can give or unanswered questions you can ask</em> will help us improve what
+we offer to those who come afterwards. </p>
