Subject Re: Invitation: Apply to be a Mentoring Organization for GCI
Date Wed, 19 Oct 2011 20:26:21 GMT
If we decided to participate, either as individual PMCs or as the ASF as a whole, we need to
work out detailed guidelines first. GCI is *very* different to GSoC, where we could expect
students to work out the details of an idea for themselves. For GCI we need to make sure that
tasks are described in great detail and adequate for school kids. This and mentoring youngsters
means *a lot* of work and can be done wrong in so many ways and ruin the participants' experience,
which we do not want.

wide effort this year.   Better to have individual PMC's with some success and grow into it
organically for the foundation.
