Subject Gearing up for GSoC 2010
Date Tue, 29 Dec 2009 15:59:29 GMT
We probably ought to think about getting ready to manage GSoC from 
within the comdev project this coming year.

In the main I think we should follow the process defined over the last 5 
years. Therefore, the first thing we need to do is bring the notes from 
the wiki into our CWiki space (and hence our website).

The second thing we need to do is agree any modifications to the 
process. Here are my starters:

- allow admins to apply negative marks in evaluation (this is to help 
them spread the applicants across a reasonable spread of scores and also 
to "correct" mentor evaluations.

- require all potential mentors to add theirprojects to their normal 
project JIRA, mark them with a comdev predefined tag (or whatever JIRA 
provides for us) and link to them from their FOAF file (exactly how can 
be worked out if we agree on this). This will allow the webapp Nick has 
started to generate a list of projects and will also mean that possible 
projects/mentors are ready for easy reuse outside GSoC.

I don't think it is a good idea to go messing with the GSoC process too 
much, but if there are other things like this we can do that will make 
it easier to roll out the full mentoring programme after GSoC is 
underway I think it's a good idea - so suggestions welcome.
