Subject [Lucene-java Wiki] Update of "SummerOfCode2011" by simonwillnauer

Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Lucene-java Wiki" for change notification.

The "SummerOfCode2011" page has been changed by simonwillnauer.


  = Lucene Google Summer of Code 2011 =
- This page is for Lucene internal infos related to Google Summer of Code 2011
+ == Students READ THIS! ==
+ Google Summer of Code 2011 is very close and the Project Applications
+ Period has started recently. Now it's time to get some excited students
+ on board for this year's GSoC.
+ We encourage students to submit an application to the Google Summer of Code
+ web-application. Lucene & Solr are amazing projects and GSoC is an
+ incredible opportunity to join the community and push the project
+ forward.
+ If you are a student and you are interested spending some time on a
+ great open source project while getting paid for it, you should submit
+ your application from March 28 - April 8, 2011. There are only 3
+ weeks until this process starts!
+ Quote from the GSoC website: "We hear almost universally from our
+ mentoring organizations that the best applications they receive are
+ from students who took the time to interact and discuss their ideas
+ before submitting an application, so make sure to check out each
+ organization's Ideas list to get to know a particular open source
+ organization better."
+ So if you have any ideas what Lucene & Solr should have, or if you
+ find any of the GSoC [[|pre-selected
projects]] interesting, please
+ join us on ([[|mailinglists]]).
 Since you as a student must
+ apply for a certain project via the [[|GSoC website]] , it's
a good idea
+ to work on it ahead of time and include the community and possible
+ mentors as soon as possible.
+ Open source development here at the Apache Software
+ Foundation happens almost exclusively in the public and I encourage you to
+ follow this. Don't mail folks privately; please use the mailing list to
+ get the best possible visibility and attract interested community
+ members and push your idea forward. As always, it's the idea that
+ counts not the person!
+ That said, please do not underestimate the complexity of even small
+ "GSoC - Projects". Don't try to rewrite Lucene or Solr!  A project
+ usually gains more from a smaller, well discussed and carefully
+ crafted & tested feature than from a half baked monster change that's
+ too large to work with.
+ Once your proposal has been accepted and you begin work, you should
+ give the community the opportunity to iterate with you.  We prefer
+ "progress over perfection" so don't hesitate to describe your overall
+ vision, but when the rubber meets the road let's take it in small
+ steps.  A code patch of 20 KB is likely to be reviewed very quickly so
+ get fast feedback, while a patch even 60kb in size can take very
+ long. So try to break up your vision and the community will work with
+ you to get things done!
+ Go! join the mailing list and apply for GSoC 2011
  == Project Ideas ==
+ New project ideas should be discussed on the mailinglist and the outcome
should be reflected as JIRA tickets marktd witl '''gsoc2011''' and '''lucene-gsoc-11''' labels.
