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

full-time for three months. Projects will provide mentoring and project ideas, and in return
the chance to get new code developed and - most importantly - to identify and bring in new

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 by no later

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

2. record your project ideas.

Just create issues in JIRA, label them with gsoc2015, and they will show up at [3]. Please
be as
specific as possible when describing your idea. Include the programming language, the tools
skills required, but try not to scare potential students away. They are supposed to learn
required before the program starts.

Use labels, e.g. for the programming language (java, c, c++, erlang, python, brainfuck, ...)
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

[4] contains some additional information (will be updated for 2015 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
please). Use a recognized address when subscribing ( or one of your alias addresses

Note that the ASF isn't accepted as a participating organization yet, nevertheless you *have

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!
