Preparation of ideas pages for GSoC 2015 (deadline: 18th February!)

margherita

Dear All,

(Apologies for cross posting)

GSoC 2015 was officially announced earlier this year. The applications for mentoring organizations are now open and this year Hamish Bowman and myself will be applying for OSGeo's participation.

The application deadline for mentoring organizations is the 20th of February, and right after that, Google will proceed examining the organizations. The showcase for evaluating the applications are the GSoC ideas pages [1], and for this reason, they need to be in perfect shape. This means that OSGeo teams are required to set up and shape their pages this week, coordinating their teams through their dev mailing lists. The pages will then linked to the main GSoC 2015 ideas page on the wiki.

Please bear in mind that there is no guarantee whatsoever of the acceptance by Google based on the success of previous years, but they will judge the organizations only on the basis of ideas pages for 2015.

Please forward this email to your project leaders and past GSoC mentors, and start listing ideas right away!

Please cc soc list with your doubts and questions.
