I am forwarding this email on behalf of Leslie Hawthorn,
a co-worker of mine @ RedHat. In the spirit of GSOC,
I wanted to see if there is interest within the ASF
and any of its projects in the effort.


Hello everyone,

Now in its third year, the Grace Hopper Open Source Day event is seeking
applications from open source projects who wish to provide mentorship in
contributing to open source projects to the attendees of the Grace
Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing Conference. [0] Applications
close at 23:59 PM Pacific Standard Time on May 31, 2013.

You can find out more about Grace Hopper Open Source Day, why you may
want your project to participate in it and the benefits for
participating projects and attendees in the GHOSD FAQ. [1]

Please note that this activity is not sponsored by OSAS or Red Hat - it
is a labor of love in my volunteer time. I thought the easiest and
fastest way to reach out to the folks who participate in our many
upstreams was to post a note here so that interested folk at Red Hat
could forward it along. You would still need to go through the usual
processes of requesting travel funding from your manager or time away if
you planned to attend on your own dime.

I am a member of the GHOSD planning committee and would be happy to
answer any questions folks may have regarding participation once they've
read through the FAQ.
