Hi everyone,

GSoC Org Applications open next week on Monday, January 23rd at 1800
UTC and close on Tuesday, February 7th at 1800 UTC.

I am interested in mentoring and being an org admin for Git again this
year, so I plan to apply for Git soon.

The GSoC contributor application deadline is April 4 - 18:00 UTC, so
(co-)mentors and org admins are already welcome to volunteer. We also
need project ideas to refresh our idea page from last year
(https://git.github.io/SoC-2022-Ideas/).

There will be a GSoC Meetup in Brussels during FOSDEM weekend on
Saturday, February 4th in the evening. I won't be there but if you are
around, interested and haven't received the link to register directly
from Google, let me know so I can send it to you.

Best,
Christian.

I would be glad to help as an Org admin this year. I don't suppose I 
have the capacity to mentor / co-mentor this year, though. I could very 
well help as much as I can passively where needed.

One thing to note about the Org application. As per Google's claim we 
should be able to complete this year's application quickly since the new 
webapp allows us to reuse last year's application details. To quote Google,

   If your org applied to GSoC in 2022 your Org Admin will have a very
   quick and easy 2023 application. : ) As mentioned last year, the
   webapp is now evergreen so if your org applied in 2022 all of the
   information for the org application is still in the system so the Org
   Admin will have a couple of quick steps to follow during the
   application window.

Do feel free to let me know if it works otherwise, Christian. I'll be 
glad to look into it.

We certainly are in need of ideas and mentors for this year. Do chime in 
with your thoughts. :-)

You are welcome to be an Org Admin, thanks!

Actually you were already an Org Admin last year and it looks like
they didn't remove people from the roles they had last year, so you
are still an Org Admin.

Yeah, I just did it and reusing last year's application details was
quite quick. One needs to read, agree on and accept 3 long documents,
and they still ask a few questions about last year's GSoC though.

They also want an URL with an idea list, so I quickly copied and
edited last year's idea list into this one:

https://git.github.io/SoC-2023-Ideas/

I removed the "Reachability bitmap improvements" idea but left the 2 others:

  - More Sparse Index Integrations (I removed `git mv` in the list of
commands that need to be improved though)
  - Unify ref-filter formats with other pretty formats

On both of them I removed all possible mentors except me though. They
are welcome to tell me that they should be added back.

Yeah, sure.

I think that puts me in the same boat, though I can't remember if I am
actually an org admin or not. If I'm not, and you folks need some extra
help, I'm happy to participate.

I am going to pass on mentoring this year, though. It was a fun
experience for me last time, but took more time than I had planned for.
If someone needs or wants a co-mentor, though, I'm happy to help there
as I think it will end up taking less time.

Thanks,
Taylor
