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.

For the record, Darshan was proposed a job in the meantime and therefore had to cancel his participation to gsoc. GIMP will not be taking a slot in the GNU project for GSoC this year.

Thanks anyway for letting us in.
Maybe next year, we will ask again, and next time, if we do ask, we will ask earlier so that we can better integrate within your process
Thanks again!

I am Jehan, one of the main developers of GIMP.

As a little background, GIMP has not subscribed to GSoC as a project for a few years now, one of the main reason being that I am nowadays one of the only developers still interested to be a mentor. And we considered this was
not enough to subscribe ourselves as a GSoC project on our own.

Darshan is a student currently working on GIMP project through a FSF
internship. He barely started a week-ago but had his first commit accepted and merged into our master tree yesterday. Hence so far, we are pleased with
the internship.
He proposed us a GSoC, which I would be happy to mentor. Yet as I said, we are not a GSoC organization. Therefore if GNU was willing to give one of its slot to GIMP as umbrella, we'd be happy to accept it. Of course maybe you already had plans so I am sorry to ask this late. It was a bit impromptu.

Thank you.
