To clarify, orgs only need 20 tasks for their org application (4 tasks from each of the 5

Should an org be accepted as a mentoring organization for GCI 2013 they will be expected to
have at
least 75 tasks by the time the contest begins on Monday, November 18th.

    Hi GSoC Mentors and Org Admins,

    Just a quick reminder that for those organizations interested in participating in Google
    2013 [0] the deadline to apply is in 5 days - Monday, October 28th at 19:00 UTC.

    If your org has decided it would like to apply to participate in the contest, please read
    Mentor Information [1] to make sure you have the time and capacity to participate in the
    contest. You can then go ahead and fill out the application [2] on Melange now. The person
    filling out the org app must already be registered in Melange from a prior instance of
    Code-in or Google Summer of Code in order to access the program application for GCI 2013.

    Please read over the rules for participating as an organization in GCI before applying,
they can
    be found on the Organization Agreement [3].

    Again this year the participating organizations will be choosing their top 2 contributors
    the contest period, every org will have 2 students represented on the Grand Prize Trip.

    The most important part of your application is the tasks list, be sure to have at least
4 tasks
    in each of the 5 categories on your app. The Task list gives you an opportunity to think
    how your org would break up tasks into bite size chunks for students to work on (sometimes
    can be a bit tricky). This is also a great way for orgs to see how easy/difficult it will
be for
    them to come up with tasks for the contest. Orgs should expect to have between 150-300
    completed by students throughout the 7 week program. The orgs that are chosen to participate
    will need to be prepared to have at least 75 tasks on their page when the contest opens
    students on Nov 18th.

    If you have any questions please contact this list or you can contact me directly at <>. Thanks.

    We will announce the GCI 2013 Mentoring orgs on Friday, November 1st.
