Dear XSF members,

our Board has decided to apply for the Google Summer of Code 2022! 🎉

Now, if you are interested in participating at GSoC 2022 as a
open-source newcomer or student, mentor or with your XMPP open-source
project in general then

- please add your ideas:
https://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Google_Summer_of_Code_2022"
- reach out to us: xmpp:gsoc at muc.xmpp.org?join
- Read the details below ;-)

There are some new interesting changes this year:

- Newcomers to open source that are 18 years and older (can be student,
but no need) can apply
- The program supports both medium sized projects (~175 hours) and large
projects (~350 hours)
- Mentors and their GSoC Contributors can decide together if they want
to extend the deadline for the project up to 22 weeks (But to my
understanding it has to start from June 2022)

Board has agreed that I will be the Organization Administrator from XSF
side. flow has offered to be a backup and do support. Everyone is
invited to support of course!
