Hi folks,

In the past we've explored doing Google Summer of Code, but without much success.  I think this year the time is right, and we should get set up to do so.  The timeline is here:


We have until the 19th of February to prep our application; I don't think we should go in as a mentoring organization, but instead attempt to apply through a larger mentoring organization such as NumFOCUS.

Is anyone willing to be a mentor?  This would involve (virtual) checkins with students and spending a fair amount of time each week working with the student.  It can be a gamble, but the program can be quite successful for both students and projects, and I personally think it's worth it.  If you're interested, ping me off list in the next few days and let's start organizing.
