Subject Re: GSoC 2015 - very little interest so far
Date Wed, 11 Feb 2015 10:40:57 GMT

Just did a quick run through for the Jena project, I found we had a bunch
of things labelled as gsoc but not as gsoc2015

In general there seems to be lots of open issues in JIRA which are
labelled gsoc and not labelled gsoc2015

There are a few projects in particular that have a lot of issues labelled
so may be worth reaching out to those PMCs and see which (if any) they
still would consider as being valid for this years GSoC and getting them
to update them.

I will bug a few communities that I am involved in to remind them about
this though none of those communities are reflected in the above mentioned
link - they either already labelled stuff up or have nothing labelled up -
so I will bug the latter group
