Hi all,

Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a program that matches mentoring
organizations with college and university student developers who are paid
to write open source code. It has been around 2005 and we had been accepted
as a mentor organization in only one opportunity (2014) having a great
outcome for both interns and for our community. We expect to be able to
join this year again, but for that, we will need your help.


We need to submit our application as a mentoring organization, but for
that, we need to have a clear outline of what different projects we have
for interns to work on.

*** The deadline for mentoring organizations applications is 19/02/2016. ***

If you are interested in mentoring but you have doubts about it, please
feel free to reach us here or on #openstack-gsoc. We will be happy to reply
any doubt you may have about mentoring for this internship. Also, you can
check out this guide [0].

If you are already convinced that you want to join us as a mentor for this
round, add your name in the OpenStack Google Summer of Code 2016 wiki page
[1] and add your project ideas in [2]. Make sure you leave your contact
information in the OpenStack GSoC 2016 wiki and that you add all the
important details about the project idea. Also reach us if there is
something you are not certain about.


Whereas we don't know yet if we are going to make it as a mentoring
organization for this round, if you want to join us as an intern and you
want to help OpenStack to get selected as a mentoring organization, you can
help us proposing different tasks for the various projects we have in our

For your inspiration, you can check out past projects in [3] and [4].

Looking forward to see GSoC happening again in our community!
