Hi all,

GSoC has started and the timeline is proceeding quickly

GNU is going to apply until February 9, and by February 27 I expect them
to be accepted to the program, which will make LilyPond applicable as well.

Students will apply between March 20 and April 3, but we expect them to
get in touch with us earlier. This and the fact that the project ideas
list might be relevant for GNU's application as well suggests that we
update our page ASAP, preferably by February 9. I'm quite positive that
having updated the ideas page had its part in having two projects last year.

So please everybody think about possible projects we can put on our
ideas list on Projects
should be possible to achieve for someone new to LilyPond within three
months of (full-time) work, and it is necessary to have someone ready to
mentor the project. If you make a suggestion it's not necessary to
volunteer for that project at the same time, although it would make
things easier ;-)


I've also provided a patch containing a section with recommendations to
potential students. They draw from my own experience as a mentor last
year and suggestions discussed both on the mentors' mailing list and the
mentors' summit last year. Please consider these paragraphs too, as they
may need more refinement and discussion.
