Out of interest, do the projects for GSOC have to fall within the Django repository themselves? Could they be an associated project under the Django umbrella?
I think something that helps with deployment in general could be interesting, but it definitely does not live inside Django core. However some form of 3rd party package exploring this is another matter entirely. On 14 February 2019 at 17:56:04, Carlton Gibson (carlton.gib...@gmail.com) wrote: Hmmm. I think that would be out for scope for Django. More suited to tools such as Ansible (and similar). I don't think adding a one step deployment story would really be feasible within a GSoC project. (As you say, it's very complex.) On Thursday, 14 February 2019 18:46:52 UTC+1, Shashank shet wrote: Thank you Carlton. I had in mind an idea for providing out-of-the-box webserver deployment capability. In the projects I've done, one of the most time consuming tasks for us was deployment on a server, mainly due to a lack of experience. That's why I figured that an automated system for deployment would be helpful. It would work similar to the runserver command, taking essential configurations from a designated file and not having to actually make changes to files in different parts of the filesystem, or following a long list of instructions manually. Any suggestion would be very helpful. On Thursday, February 14, 2019 at 6:32:17 PM UTC+5:30, Carlton Gibson wrote: Hi Shashank. "Sir"? That's my father, surely. 🙂 (Not "sir" 🙂) We've applied as an Org. Haven't heard yet whether we'll be accepted. If so, proposals would be welcome. We'd then need to think about mentors. Good proposals will draw out people there. If we can get all that lined up then, yes, in principle we're accepting applications.

We'll then see about the proposals. The main thing is that we need to know who you are, and have confidence in you in order to commit to the project with you. For people to mentor you is a big commitment of time and energy. You need to demonstrate that will be well invested. The way to do that is to get involved and show us who you are over the next few months. Help reproduce bugs, review patches, create patches etc. It doesn't take much before you're visible. (Really!) The best way (also) to come up with project ideas is to see where there are issues already. (Much better than us providing a list.) So again, be involved. If you start now, there's still lots of time, so I'm hoping.
