Let’s start planning for GSoC 2022!
Project ideas will be project threads with the
gsoc2022-project in #community:gsoc as we have done in prior years. All communication and questions should ideally happen on these threads. When selected, we will make another thread in the project category: #projects:lh-toolkit, #projects:lh-rad, #projects:mhbs with the same title and tag and the topic under #community:gsoc will be closed.
Also as in prior years, all communication MUST be public.
There were some changes this year that we need to adjust to:
There are now ~175-hour projects and ~350-hour projects now. We should plan both and specify such – let’s use
small-projecttag for 175-hour projects and
large-projecttag for 350-hour projects. See the section from the mentors’ guide.
This year, we are open to non-students and students alike. We should still evaluate projects based on the proposals. Not sure how this will play out with spam proposals.
Students will be required to do a starter task. Please define these in your project ideas. They can be tangential to the project itself, but should not be the project. This task should be non-trivial as we need to evaluate the candidates’ technical skills.
Be prepared and on-hand to respond to questions when the accepted organizations are announced and especially when the Contributor Application Period opens on 2022-04-04T18:00:00Z. Review the program timeline.
Students: Please do not make project post topics, only mentors should be doing this.
