Subject Fwd: Google Summer of Code 2017 Mentor Registration
Date Tue, 07 Mar 2017 14:52:58 GMT
Do we have any GSOC2017 ideas for Apache Commons? Tag them with the label
"gsoc2017" in Jira!

Any volunteers to mentor GSOC2017 students? All committers are eligible, I
guess for Commons that is a bit special (as all ASF committers have write
access), but I guess if you have contributed before to any of the Commons
components that should be sufficient.

GSOC is a good way to engage with fresh developers, and the ideas can be
both new/experimental features or incremental improvements and refactoring;
although I will admit the first type of ideas often gets more interest.

Apache Commons can be a good target for GSOC students as most of our
components are independent and easy to get started with.

Dear PMCs,

I'm happy to announce that the ASF has made it onto the list of accepted
organizations for
Google Summer of Code 2017! [1,2]

It is now time for mentors to sign up, so please pass this email on to your
community and
podlings. If you aren’t already subscribed to
you should do so now else
you might miss important information.

Mentor signup requires two steps: mentor signup in Google's system [3] and
PMC acknowledgement.

If you want to mentor a project in this year's SoC you will have to

1. Be an Apache committer.
2. Request an acknowledgement from the PMC for which you want to mentor
projects. Use the below
template and *do not forget to copy*. We will
use the email adress you
indicate to send the invite to be a mentor for Apache.

PMCs, read carefully please.

We request that each mentor is acknowledged by a PMC member. This is to
ensure the mentor is in good
standing with the community. When you receive a request for
acknowledgement, please ACK it and cc

Lastly, it is not yet too late to record your ideas in Jira (see my
previous emails for details).
Students will now begin to explore ideas so if you haven’t already done so,
record your ideas
