Re: GSoC 2015 call for ideas

Hi folks,

I know many people have been busy with the UI freeze work earlier, and just wanted to remind again to add 
ideas you are willing to mentor in GSoC to as soon as 
possible. GNOME applied to be a mentoring organization on Friday, and it would be good to have more ideas on 
our ideas page as Google evaluates it. The participating organizations will be announced next Monday.

Dear GNOME hackers,

It's that time of the year again: Google Summer of Code is approaching. We've updated our program pages [1] 
to have the latest information and we need your help in creating a list of great project ideas. It's 
essential that we have a well-prepared ideas page when GNOME applies as a mentoring organization by next 
Friday, February 20.

So what should you do? Please visit the ideas page [2] and enter your project ideas under the "Untriaged 
Ideas" section.

 * Discuss your ideas with designers in #gnome-design to get their input and plan collaboration, especially 
if your ideas are related to one of the core GNOME modules. If you are not sure who to speak to, start with 
Allan Day (aday).
 * Consider manageable ideas consisting of multiple smaller features that share a common theme, in addition 
to single large feature ideas. See the information for mentors page [3] for more on preferred project formats 
and other mentoring resources.

If you are interested in being a mentor this year or at any point find yourself drafted to be one, please 
join soc-mentors-list [4] to receive future communications about GNOME's participation in GSoC, including the 
information about important deadlines.

The GNOME administrators for GSoC participation this year are Alexandre Franke, Christophe Fergeau, Ekaterina 
Gerasimova, Lasse Schuirmann, and Marina Zhurakhinskaya. Big thank you to Fabiano Fidencio, who was an 
administrator for the last two years! Welcome to Lasse Schuirmann, who was a GSoC participant last year!
