digitalmars.D - We need mentors for GSOC

Hello everyone,

As I posted last week, we are currently preparing to apply as an 
org for GSOC. As such, I have selected a list of projects that 
are candidates for GSOC. The problem is that we do not have 
sufficient mentors. Please take a look at this list [1] and if 
you are willing to mentor any of the projects add yourself to the 
  "Point of contact" region. It doesn't matter how many people 
have already put themselves there; the more the better. Also, if 
you do that, please make sure that the description follows the 
guidelines presented here [2].

If you have a project of your own that you want to propose or you 
think that an existing project should be marked as `gsoc2021`, 
please contact me so that we can discuss it.
We have until the 19th of February to come with a great "Project 
Ideas" list and I'm sure we can make it.

Cheers,
RazvanN

That's great! The next steps are: (1) put yourself on the mentor/point of contact label on the project pages that you want to mentor and (2) make sure that the project description matches the guidelines from here [1].

We currently have 6 GSoC projects listed on the ideas page https://github.com/dlang/projects/issues?q=is%3Aissue+is%3Ao en+label%3Agsoc2021 which is rather low. Getting it to at least 8 would both increase our chances of being selected and give students a bit more leeway for their proposals if we do get selected. So please consider mentoring if you have the time and knowledge to lead one of the projects (https://github.com/dlang/projects/issues), or you can propose your own if you think it's missing. A quick reminder is that GSoC this year is planned to be shorter so the projects aimed for summer of code needs to account for that. More on that here: https://opensource.googleblog.com/2020/10/google-summer-of-code-2021-is-bringing.html See also the GSoC announcement thread: https://forum.dlang.org/thread/dpmikdidvhjymcitnvmi forum.dlang.org

We now have 8 strong projects. Anyone who is interested please put yourself in the mentor list of any of these projects [1] (it doesn't matter if the project already has 1 or more mentors; the more, the better). Also, please make sure that the project descriptions are in good shape. The application deadline is in a few hours. Let's keep our fingers crossed.
