Subject RE: Google Summer of Code 2019 is coming
Date Tue, 29 Jan 2019 18:34:21 GMT
It is an amazing idea. I am thinking if it should be a feature because developing a new feature
needs a bit deeper understanding of Trafodon product. I wonder if it can be rewrite of the
existing code or an isolated feature to make it more efficient or robust.

Is this something of interest to the Trafodion community? Is there some feature in our engine
that we could ask a student to attack over the summer?

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
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
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 record).

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.
