Hi folks,

Could those people who intend putting up ideas (for their own projects, don’t go suggesting things on behalf of other people, please) for GSoC students please fill in http://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Summer_of_Code_2016 in the usual format By Wednesday At The Latest. If you’re in doubt about whether you’re suitable as a mentor, please get in touch with me, but some general guidelines:

Must be willing to dedicate an hour a day (in the usual case) up to about 2 hours a day (if you’re unlucky) every work day for the duration of the summer to mentor the students.
Must be mentoring for your own software project.
Must be known and of high standing in the XSF.
Must be able to do a reasonable job of actively mentoring a student, not simply expecting them to get on with writing code unsupervised.

Any questions, please discuss.

/K
