Hi Jehan,

If Darshan is working with GIMP as part of a FSF Internship, will he have the
time to work on a GSoC project as well? Remember, the work for the internship
and the GSoC project need to be clearly separate projects.

Apart from that, I guess GIMP as a GNU project can take part for GSoC under the
GNU umbrella. Please send an email to address@hidden, address@hidden and
address@hidden with the following information to register as a mentor:


Once, we receive this information, you will be sent an invitation as a
mentor to the GSoC website. However, we cannot guarantee a slot for the project
at this point. Please remain subscribed to this list for further notices.
