Hello all,

We are approaching towards the beginning of the student application period
in two weeks time. If you have a project in mind that you would have the
time and interest to mentor, please create a task on Wikimedia Phabricator
and add a Google-Summer-of-Code-2018
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/view/3096/> tag to it in the
next few days or so.

Check out the existing ideas for projects and program timeline here:

More information for mentors:

Let me know if you've questions!
