I'm happy to facilitate this and get the details in for our
application. Seems like we have lots of things that we could get
students involved with, and of course, we tend to get interesting
projects pitched to us that we haven't thought of before.

I've attended the Mentor Summit after GSoC for the last two years, and
found it to be a great resource for learning how all projects are
recruiting and retaining new members. Many of these projects admire
Postgres for it's stability over the years, and I've been able to
communicate some of the work that we've all done on the commit fest,
our review process and generally how our community works to many other

Those who would like to mentor and help administrate the program,
please get in touch with me directly <selena(at)postgresql(dot)org>. I'll set
up some lists to keep us in sync, and we'll report out what happens.

Hello folks,

If you're not following the program discussion list, you may have
missed this mail with some details about timing for GSoC 2010:



Hello everyone,
Many of you were wondering if Google Summer of Code 2010 is on for
2010 and the answer is yes! We will begin accepting application from
would-be mentoring organizations beginning March 8th at approximately
19:00 UTC, with applications closing on March 12th at 23:00 UTC.
Students can apply between 19:00 UTC on March 29th to 19:00 UTC on
April 9th.
We will be updating the program website [0], including the FAQs [1],
over the next few days. Not much is going to change except the
timeline, though there are a few FAQs that will be added. If you have
any questions in the interim please do send them to the list. Please
note that questions about which project you should select, etc., will
likely be responded to with "depends on your skill set," so please
take the time to do some research [2] about which project is right for
While mentoring organizations for 2010 will be announced until March
18th, a great number of the projects that have participated in the
past [3] will return once again in 2010. Of course, that's not a
guarantee and we cannot accept every great project that applies. But
if you want to get a jump start on your participation in GSoC 2010,
considering lurking in the IRC channel of a past participating project
and seeing what useful things you can learn about their code base and
community. Check out project forums to see if it's a place you'd like
to spend your time.
I'll be sending a follow up message in a few minutes about what to
expect in the next few days/weeks and how you can help Google Summer
of Code 2010.
Google Summer of Code 2010 is on! Celebrate!
