Every Apache project has their own developer's mailing list, that's
where you can get in touch with people from a specific project.

For Droids, see http://incubator.apache.org/droids/mail-lists.html

Google Summer of Code 2012 upcoming

Hello PMCs,

Google Summer of Code is the ideal opportunity for you to attract new
contributors to your projects.

If you want to participate with your project you NOW need to

- understand what it means to be a mentor [1]
- propose your project ideas. Just label your issues with gsoc2012 in JIRA and
  they will show up at [2]. See also [1].
- subscribe to code-awards@... (restricted to potential
mentors, meant to be used
  as a private list - general discussions on the public
  dev@... list as much as possible please)

The ASF will apply as a participating organization with GSoC, your project
doesn't need to do that. See [3] for more information. Note that the ASF isn't
accepted yet, nevertheless you *really* should start recording your ideas now.

Last year we had 38 students completing GSoC successfully, some of which are
now active contributors to the projects they worked on. Let's make this a
success again this year!

On behalf of the GSoC 2012 admins,

Uli

Re: Google Summer of Code 2012 upcoming

Since there hasn't been any progress since a week I took the freedom to sent this announcement to
our PMCs. This was necessary since we need an extensive list of tasks BEFORE we apply as an org -
the deadline for which is in 5 days btw.

FOP and GSoC 2012

Hi,

I have submitted two project proposals to the COMDEV JIRA
(https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMDEV-66 and
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMDEV-67), however, FOP is
still using Bugzilla for issue tracking. I was just wondering if there
was anything that was needed from me?

Not at the moment. You did exactly what we expected of you ;)

Cheers,

Re: Google Summer of Code 2012 upcoming

Thanks Uli!

I've sent in the application now. It seems to be possible to update it
until the deadline, but I've based it largely on previous years' (incl
updates to the mentor selection), so unless there are any major
changes, I think it will be ok.

Thanks!

There has been talk of sorting some out, but I'm not sure we have anything 
yet. We'd need to find the high quality version of the feather logo 
first...
