Application to be a Google Summer of Code Mentoring Organization

The PC-BSD Project has applied to be a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code 2011 (GSoC). GSoC funds students to contribute to an open source project over their summer break. GSoC provides students an excellent opportunity to improve their collaborative development skills and become an active contributor within an open source community. Google will announce the projects that will participate in GSoC 2011 on March 18.

If the PC-BSD Project is accepted as a mentoring organization and you are interested in applying for GSoC 2011, the PC-BSD GSoC 2011 wiki provides some sample project ideas which are suitable for Summer of Code projects. You are not limited to these suggestions–ideas for projects that will benefit the PC-BSD community are welcome. If you are interested in a proposal, read through the submission template and make sure that your application is in to Google between March 28 and April 8, 2011. Accepted students will be announced on April 25.
