The application deadline for GSoC and FOSS OPW has passed. The pool of
candidates to choose from includes
* 43 GSoC proposals from 42 candidates
* 18 OPW proposals from 18 candidates, one of them a GSoC candidate as well
There are many projects that have received several proposals. In a few
hours the dust will settle in the wiki pages, where many candidates are
currently syncing their information.
Everybody is invited to join the selection process.
All mentors must join the GSoC or OPW review websites in order to join the
private evaluation of candidates. The rest of the community is encouraged
to help reviewing proposals and asking hard questions to candidates and
mentors in their respective talk pages or Bugzilla reports.
By April 7 we need to decide how many slots we want to request in each
program. In GSoC we request a number of slots to Google, which we might or
might not get. In OPW we fund some slots, we might request more, and then
we might get them or not.
Questions? Just ask.
