Google Summer of Code mentoring org applications open in a week. I'm
getting Python's 2016 application ready, and I wanted to let you all
know that we're always open for new projects to try out GSoC with the
support of my experienced volunteer team. The more good project ideas
and mentors we have ready to go when applications close on the 19th, the
more likely we are to be accepted as a mentoring org again this year.
For those of you not familiar with it, GSoC is a program where Google
provides funds to pay students to work an open source project over a 3
month period, if the community is willing to provide mentoring and
support for the student. The Python Software Foundation has
participated since 2005 as an "umbrella organization" for a variety of
pythonic "sub-orgs." We had 70 students last year and raised $35k for
I'm also looking for individual volunteers this year, so you can
participate even if you're not affiliated with one of our sub-orgs.

And if you have any questions or want to join us, you can email my
volunteer team at gsoc-adm...@python.org.
