Hi hackers.

As it is usual, this year GNU will be applying to become a Google Summer
of Code [0] organization.  Provided we get selected I will be the org
admin and Giuseppe Scrivano will volunteer as the co-admin.

The (still empty) ideas page can be found at [1].  Now it is a matter of
filling it with interesting projects!  We will send the org application
to Google the 25 of March.  Until then, please follow the following
guidelines in order to submit ideas:

- If you are an eligible student and have an idea that is not listed
  here, you should propose it normally through the Google Summer of Code
  web site (after applications are open). Please discuss it with the
  package maintainers.

- If you are a GNU package developer, have an idea for a Summer of Code
  project for your own package, and can mentor it yourself, please email
  the idea at address@hidden and one of the administrators will
  add it. (Simple HTML fragment in plain text preferred.) Please also
  recruit a backup mentor and tell us who that will be. Make sure that
  the description of your idea contains enough information (perhaps in
  the form of pointers to other information or mailing lists) for
  students to research the feasibility of them implementing your
  idea. More info.

- In all other cases (e.g., you are a developer with an idea for another
  package), please contact the maintainer for the package. If you can
  find a mentor for the project (or, hopefully, can mentor it yourself),
  then we will add it if it is feasible. The project must meet the
  Summer of Code criteria; see the guidelines.

Finally, if you want to propose an idea already proposed last year but
that was not implemented, please just point it out in
address@hidden and we will just move the correponding
description to this year's page.

Thanks! :)
