Thanks for your interest in CPython for Google Summer of Code!

Mentor organizations haven't been selected yet (the official mentor
list will go out on February 24th), and we are still finalizing our
project list.

In the meantime, I recommend:

1. Joining http://pythonmentors.com/
2. Reading through the developers guide: http://docs.python.org/devguide/
3. Picking and working on a ticket to get used to the workflow:

In particular, it will be important to have contributed some patches
to CPython before you apply, so I recommend focusing on that for the
next couple of weeks. If you have questions while finding bugs and
preparing patches, please don't hesitate to ask on the
pythonmentors.com mailing list.
