[Live-demo] Google Summer of Code for OSGeo-Live/UbuntuGIS/DebianGIS?

Hi all,
I'm wondering whether we should put forward a 
"debiangis/ubuntugis/osgeolive packaging" idea as a Google Summer of 
Code project?

In particular, I could see the focus would be on packaging of java 
packages, which to date have been difficult. It would involve 
researching best practices, providing recommendations based upon 
research, liaising with projects and packaging communities, and 
implementing the packaging.

I reckon it would be hugely valuable, and also a great stretch task for 
a student.

Anyone wish to volunteer as a mentor?

Any other projects?

Hello all, and sorry for cross posting,

this year, Google Summer of Code starts earlier than usual: the
applications for mentoring organisations are already open, and will
close on February 14th.

For who is new to Summer of Code, it is a global program that offers
students stipends to write code for open source projects. See more at

OSGeo is going to apply for GSoC 2014, and the first task is to set up
Ideas pages for all projects, before February, 14th. It is a little
more than a week!

The Ideas page is being built here, and shall contain links to all
the geospatial projects involved:
The links from past year are commented in the wiki page. If you have
trouble editing the wiki let me or Hamish know.

I encourage developers, teachers and students to start working on ideas
for GSoC and populate the Ideas pages of the related project.
Please forward this mail, or the link to OSGeo GSoC wiki pages, to all
the interested people and projects.

If you have questions, please send a mail to the dedicated mailing list
soc at lists.osgeo.org .

Thanks everyone in advance for your contribution to the Ideas pages -
let's do our best to get OSGeo accepted in GSoC 2014!


Best regards,

Anne and Hamish
OSGeo GSoC Admins
