Dear All,

*GSoC 2015* was officially announced earlier this year. The applications
for mentoring organizations are now open and this year Hamish Bowman and
myself will be applying for OSGeo's participation.
The application deadline for mentoring organizations is the 20th of
February, and right after that, Google will proceed examining the
organizations. The showcase for evaluating the applications are the *GSoC
ideas pages* [1], and for this reason, they need to be in perfect shape.
This means that OSGeo teams are required to set up and shape their pages
this week, coordinating their teams through their dev mailing lists. The
pages will then linked to the main GSoC 2015 ideas page on the wiki.
Please bear in mind that there is no guarantee whatsoever of the acceptance
by Google based on the success of previous years, but they will judge the
organizations only on the basis of ideas pages for 2015.
Please forward this email to your project leaders and past GSoC mentors,
and start listing ideas right away!
Please cc soc list with your doubts and questions.
