FYI.  Please make sure to follow Ulrich's instructions and label the ideas
in JIRA as he's askit to.

It is extremely important for us since GSOC has been a really great
way to grow (and retain!) new members of the community!

I would really encourage at least 2 volunteers from every podling
community to consider mentoring for GSoC. Please reply to me
BELLOW) if you are offering to be a mentor.

Really hoping for your help!

Subject: Google Summer of Code 2016 is coming
To: mentors@community.apache.org

Hello PMCs (incubator Mentors, please forward this email to your podlings),

Google Summer of Code [1] is a program sponsored by Google allowing
students to spend their summer
working on open source software. Students will receive stipends for
developing open source software
full-time for three months. Projects will provide mentoring and
project ideas, and in return have
the chance to get new code developed and - most importantly - to
identify and bring in new committers.

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

If you want to participate with your project we ask you to do the
following things as soon as
possible but by no later than 2016-02-19:

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

2. record your project ideas.

Just create issues in JIRA, label them with gsoc2016, 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 dev@community.apache.org if you need assistance.

[4] contains some additional information (will be updated for 2016 shortly).

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

Note that the ASF isn't accepted as a participating organization yet,
nevertheless you *have to*
start recording your ideas now or we will not get accepted.

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 year a success again!



P.S.: Except for the private parts (label spreadsheet mostly), this
email is free to be shared
publicly if you want to.
