Subject: Google Summer of Code 2013

Hello PMCs,

Google Summer of Code [1] is the ideal opportunity for you to attract new
contributors to your projects.

The ASF will apply as a participating organization meaning individual
projects don't have to apply

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

- understand what it means to be a mentor [2].

- record your project ideas. Just create issues in JIRA, label them with
gsoc2013, and they will
show up at [3]. Please be as specific as possible when describing your
idea. Include the programming
language, the tools and skills required, but try not to scare potential
students away. They are
supposed to learn what's required before the program starts. Use labels,
e.g. for the programming
language (java, c, c++, erlang, python, brainfuck, ...) or technology area
(cloud, xml, web, foo,
bar, ...) and record them at [5]. Please use the COMDEV JIRA project for
recording your ideas if
your project doesn't use JIRA (e.g. httpd, ooo). Contact if you need

- subscribe to (restricted to potential mentors,
meant to be used as a
private list - general discussions on the public
dev@community.apache.orglist as much as possible
please). Use a recognized address when subscribing ( or one of
your alias addresses on

Note that the ASF isn't accepted yet, nevertheless you *really* should
start recording your ideas now.

Over the years we were able to complete hundreds of projects successfully.
Some of our prior
students are active contributors now! Let's make this a success again this

is free to be shared
publicly if you want to.
