Hello folks, I know that some of you are just beginning to mentor your Season of KDE students. However, Google has made the prep phase for GSoC even earlier this year, so it is time to start NOW.
For more information: https://g.co/gsoc/faq
More: http://write.flossmanuals.net/gsoc-mentoring/about-this-manual/ and https://google.github.io/gsocguides/mentor
I would strongly suggest talking with your team and finding out who can mentor this year, and what your team would like to propose for the Ideas page. The sooner we get our ducks in a row, the better. *The strength of our Ideas page is the most important part of our organization application.*
If you will be mentoring GSoC this year, please ensure that you are subscribed to KDE-Soc-Mentor list. You'll need to ping one of us admins if you aren't soon accepted. We don't allow any students on that list, and sometimes can't tell who is who. I can't stress strongly enough -- every mentor must be subscribed. You will be invited to the GSoC app after (if!) we are accepted. Once again this year we'd like two mentors per student.
People interested in helping to administer this year should join #kde-soc-admin (IRC or matrix-only) and the KDE-Soc-Management ml after discussing how you can contribute with the present admins.
All the best,
