Dear All,

We hope that you all are healthy and safe and taking good care of dear
Due to COVID-19 pandemic, there has been some adjustments done in the GSoC
2020 timeline by the Google OSPO team.

Yes, GSoC 2020 is still happening with the following significant
adjustments to the timeline:

1. 3 weeks to review student proposals (updated from 2 weeks)

   - Adjusted duration for Student proposal review is now *March 31-April

2. Extended Community Bonding period to 4 weeks (updated from 3 weeks)

   - The official coding period starts *June 1. *The Community Bonding
   Period will be from *May 4-31. *This will allow enhanced mentor-student
   interaction and will help the student in getting familiar with the project

Please note that there is no change in the Student Application Period
(which has already started on March 16). The deadline for submitting the
final project proposals by the Students is unchanged i.e. *March 31 1800
UTC*. The updated timeline is available at [1].

We have already started receiving student proposals for feedback and
comments and are expecting more responses in the coming days. Thanks to the
students for sharing their proposals.

@Students: It is high time for start preparing your draft proposals and
sharing it with the community for feedback and comments. Don't forget to
update adjustments in the timeline if you have already prepared the draft
proposal. The final proposal should be submitted after logging into the
GSoC Dashboard. Please take a moment to get well-versed with the Dashboard
to avoid last minute hassle.

Finally, nothing is more important than health and safety of human life.
Please continue taking good care of yourself and loved ones.

Stay safe and keep sanitizing your keyboard!

With kind regards,
Your OSGeo GSoC Admins
