Subject Re: Google Summer of Code 2015 is coming
Date Fri, 06 Feb 2015 13:56:19 GMT
Some of the community members here have already some experience with GSoC
because back in the Stratosphere days we were also participating in GSoC.

In my experience its more work than one might think in the beginning. But
it would be great if some committers in the projects agree to mentor some
students.
I'm pretty loaded with work right now and it would add too much to my
stress level to mentor a student. But I would be willing to help out with
answering questions on the ML etc.
