Hi Folks,
Please see above. If anyone is interested in participating in or mentoring
a GSoC project then please respond to this thread. Usually, from there you
can open a Jira ticket in which ever project it is you are interested and
we take it from there.
Have a great weekend.

To: mentors@community.apache.org

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

If you want to participate with your project we ask you to do the following
things as soon as
possible but by no later than 2017-02-09:

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

2. record your project ideas.

Just create issues in JIRA, label them with gsoc2017, 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.org if you need assistance.

[4] contains some additional information (will be updated for 2017 shortly).

3. subscribe to mentors@community.apache.org; restricted to potential
mentors, meant to be used as a
private list - general discussions on the public dev@community.apache.org
list as much as possible
please). Use a recognized address when subscribing (@apache.org 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 will 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.: Except for the private parts (label spreadsheet mostly), this email
is free to be shared
publicly if you want to.
