Dear All,

Greetings! Wishing you all a very happy new year.

It is the time of the year to start preparing for OSGeo's participation in
the Google Summer of Code 2023 [1]. With the great success of GSoC 2022
projects [2], we are highly excited and motivated to invite the OSGeo
projects (Projects, Incubation projects, Guest Projects) to begin compiling
the project ideas for GSoC 2023.

In order to participate in proposing ideas as a project under the OSGeo
umbrella organization, you just need to send us (admins:  <gsoc-admin at
osgeo dot org>) the URL for your project's GSoC ideas Wiki page. If you are
participating for the first time, then you may visit [3] for reference.

*Please remember that every idea should indicate:*

   1. A title
   2. Brief descriptions of projects that can be completed in ~175 hours or
   ~350 hours of your GSoC contributor’s time (and labeled appropriately)
   3. 3 Mentors' Details - Name, Email (Primary and Supporting mentors)
   4. For each project, a list of prerequisites, a description of
   programming skills needed, and an estimation of the difficulty level
   5. A test for the students to submit to your evaluation. The test aims
   at evaluating if the student is capable of the project, so please design
   the test having in mind the basic skills required to complete the project.

The organization application period starts *Jan* *23, 2023* and will be
open till *Feb 7, 2023*. So, we expect all the URLs by *Jan 31, 2022* (~12
days from now). Here is the complete GSoC 2023 timeline [4].

1. GSoC 2023 follows the new changes introduced with GSoC 2022. We
sincerely recommend going through the announcement mentioning new changes
2. If you floated ideas in GSoC 2022 but couldn't progress ahead, then it
is a great time to start working on those ideas again.

Thanks, and please forward the information to your respective project's
mailing list! Always waiting for further queries. :)

(PS- A call for contributors to the OSGeo project ideas with instructions
on interacting with projects will be sent soon, so please be ready for
welcoming new members to the community.)
