I forward this message from the OSGeo Discuss mailing list to let you
know the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) program has been announced. Last
years gvSIG has participated on the program but now that we have a
list devoted to the Campus community I hope the students will come
from there and mentors from the TSC list. That's why I cross post to
As every year, the hardest part is joining the three parts of a GSoC
grant: a student, a mentor and a good idea to develop so I hope we can
get those "triplets" fast and provide reliable candidates to the OSGeo
Please, stand up if you are interested on mentoring, you know/are a
student able to apply or you have a good idea to develop. As on the
past years, use the OSGeo wiki to write down your ideas, it's not
needed to be a long description, take a look on past years ideas

GSoC 2012 has been announced [1,2] and OSGeo is going to apply as
mentoring organisation, like it did successfully in past years.
What's up now? OSGeo projects that plan to take part in GSoC are
invited to put together an Ideas page on their wiki and add a link to
it on our central Ideas page [3,4], make a "call for mentors" on their
communication channels, and welcome would-be students as contributors.
Would-be students can browse the Ideas pages of previous years and
contact former students and mentors. We also suggest them to that they
introduce themselves and start contributing to the project they have
chosen, in order to get in touch with the project's community and get
familiar with the codebase.
All: take a look at the calendar  and spread the word about OSGeo
GSoC in real and virtual places around the world!
