Dear Foundation,

The application process for the new round of Outreach Program for
Women internships has recently started, and we are looking for people
willing to mentor GNOME projects in this round. Because we only
usually have a few participants in OPW, this round we would only like
to offer projects that are most strategic for GNOME. These include,
but are not limited to, projects in the area of privacy [1], developer
experience, GTK+ [2], core experience, core applications [3], and web
infrastructure. We would also like people to think ahead of time how
they will be able to provide excellent mentorship to the interns
before, during, and after the internship, and whether there is a
larger project team the intern will be able to receive support from.
Matthias Clasen, Allan Day, and Sriram Ramkrishna have kindly agreed
to be a part of a cross-team triage committee for proposed project
ideas. Please add ideas you are willing to mentor to the wiki page for
the round [4] by early next week.

Hi Marina,

Will the mentors still be required to sign a document that makes them
legally liable?

Hi Germán,

Yes. The legal liability is only for gross negligence, recklessness or intentional wrongdoing. This is 
covered on

This is not unique to OPW. GSoC has similar terms mentors have to agree to, which are much more broad - .
