Subject Re: Google Summer of Code 2018 Mentor Registration
Date Tue, 27 Feb 2018 23:43:43 GMT
Any podlings participating in GSOC this year? 
(strongly recommended!)

See below for mentor registration procedure - mentors need
acknowledgement from someone else on your private@podling.incubator list
(aka the podling PMC). Note that you do NOT normally need ACK from the
Incubator PMC. [1]


Terminology: Your GSOC "mentors" are probably different from your
existing Incubator "mentors"!  The GSOC mentor can be any of the
committers of your podling (that the PPMC deem suitable for mentoring a
student fresh to your code base). 

Later your incubator mentors can assist in how to give the students
access, e.g. how to process pull requests or ask for ICLAs. Your PPMC is
free to decide when/if to grant a successful GSOC student committership.

See my separate email [2] on how to register GSOC ideas in JIRA to
attract potential students.
