Re: Mea Culpa: If you've been rejected from being a Summer of Code mentor on the basis of not being a Foundation member, please reapply

If you are contributor to GNOME, I strongly encourage you to apply for and become a GNOME Foundation member. It makes it easier for us to confirm you to outside organizations like this, for travel sponsorships for GNOME events *and* it shows the strength of the GNOME Foundation and the GNOME project.

Hi all,

Sorry for this spam, but apparently I've been a little overzealous in enforcing our requirement that only GNOME Foundation members can be Summer of Code mentors.  In fact, if you are not a foundation member but easily could be, you are more than welcome as a mentor!

So, if you have received a rejection for your mentor application, and you feel that your contributions are enough to hypothetically receive Foundation membership, please accept my apologies and reapply.  We can always use more mentors, even if you just want to help with ranking proposals.

The proposal period opens today, so now is a great time to join. :-)

Thanks for your time,
