On the Outreachy website you need to get an account in order to request
to become a (co-)mentor.  The “community managers” (I think this
includes me) then approve that.

At this point you can write the proposal on the Outreachy website.  This
will again need to be approved in the end.  We need to have a written
proposal in the Outreachy system before the next round begins.
Outreachy is a bit stricter in that regard than GSoC where it’s
sufficient to have a vague project idea on some website.  This is
generally a good thing, because it facilitates more successful projects
with fewer sub-projects that nobody ever thought through (which is a bad
thing to discover one third into the internship).
