Hi all,

A little note to the whole OSGeo community that the Google Code-in 
contest begins tomorrow at 17:00 UTC.  Please keep in mind that a 
possible 1400+ students, aged 13-17 and from 500+ schools across the 
world can be diving into the OSGeo community, and asking questions on 
your project's email list, IRC/gitter/slack channels.  Please be extra 
kind to questions over the next 2 months (until 17 January).

I also want to take the time to thank those volunteers for mentoring the 
students, and who have created short tasks (that take 3-5 hours to be 
completed over 5 days) for OSGeo projects & initiatives, so that young 
students from all over the world get exposed to the OSGeo family's 
passion for sharing :)
