Greg and comdev pmc,

What is the process for raising our hand to want to participate in GSOC
under the Foundation-wide application?

Do we need to get our project ideas listed somewhere prior to the GSOC org
application deadline of Feb 19?

Is there an equivalent of this page that's current for 2016?

http://community.apache.org/gsoc.html

Cheers,

Ed
