Subject: Ten Years of Google Summer of Code - GSoC 2014 is coming

Hello PMCs,

Google Summer of Code [1] is celebrating it’s tenth year and we at Apache
hopefully our tenth year of participation. In order to also make this year
a success for you and your project, we now need your help.

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

If you want to participate with your project you have to do the following
things by no later than 2014-02-10 19:00 UTC

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

- record your project ideas. Just create issues in JIRA, label them with
gsoc2014, 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.orgif you need assistance. [4] contains some
additional information.

- subscribe to (this used to be the list, you don’t have to subscribe again; restricted
to potential mentors, meant to be used as a private list - general
discussions on the public list as much as possible
please). Use a recognized address when subscribing ( or one of
your alias addresses on record).

Note that the ASF isn't accepted yet, nevertheless you *have to* start
recording your ideas now or we might 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
tenth 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.
