Subject: Google Summer of Code 2011 is almost there

Hello PMCs,

Google Summer of Code is the ideal opportunity for you to attract new
contributors to your projects.

If you want to participate with your project you now need to

 - understand what it means to be a mentor [1]
 - propose your project ideas. Just label your issues with gsoc2011 in JIRA and
   they will show up at [2]. See also [1].
 - subscribe to code-awards@apache.org (restricted to mentors, meant to be used
   as a private list - general discussions on the public
   dev@community.apache.org list as much as possible please)

The ASF has applied as a participating organization with GSoC, your project
doesn't need to do that. See [3] for more information. Note that the ASF isn't
accepted yet, you *really* should start recording your ideas now nevertheless.

Last year we had 39 students completing GSoC successfully, some of which are
now active contributors to the projects they worked on. Let's make this a
success again this year!

On behalf of the GSoC 2011 admins,

Uli
