digitalmars.D.announce - Google Summer of Code -- We didn't make it

Unfortunately, our application to Google Summer of Code was not accepted this year. Google has never given us a reason for rejection other than saying that there were many more applications than available slots. If you look at the list of organizations year by year, I'm sure you'll find some that are accepted more than others, but a number of them make it some years and not others. I do believe that applications that get past an initial set of criteria, the application itself ceases to be a factor. Our last acceptance to GSoC was 2019. This is our third consecutive rejection (we didn't apply last year). We'll try again next year. In the meantime, please think of potential projects we can include in our application and submit your ideas to the [project repository](https://github.com/dlang/projects). GSoC projects are allocated anywhere from 12 weeks to 22 weeks, so keep that in mind when you submit your ideas. Also note that the same projects could be taken up by Symmetry Autumn of Code participants. SAOC lasts in the neighborhood of 18 weeks.
