Subject: Google Summer of Code 2019 is coming

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 separately.

If you want to participate with your project we ask you to do the
following things by no later than
2019-01-31 19:00 UTC (applications from organizations close a week later)

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

2. record your project ideas.

Just create issues in JIRA, label them with gsoc2019, 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, ...).

Please use the COMDEV JIRA project for recording your ideas if your
project doesn't use JIRA (e.g.
httpd, ooo). Contact if you need assistance.

[4] contains some additional information (will be updated for 2019 shortly).

3. subscribe to; 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

Note that the ASF isn't accepted as a participating organization 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 year a success again!

P.S.: this email is free to be shared publicly if you want to.
