Subject: Google Summer of Code 2015 -- Last call for participants

So far, I've only received one message expressing interest in having the DocBook project apply to participate in the Google Summer of Code this year.

The applications open today (Feb 9) and close in 10 days (Feb 20), so unless I hear from a few more people, I don't think it will make sense to apply this time around.

I've enclosed my original message for your reference. If you're interested, now's your last chance to raise your hand.

Best regards,

As many of you know, the DocBook project (as distinct from the DocBook TC, though many people participate in both activities) applied to the program several times and was accepted twice. The program has brought us some useful software and, even more important, new contributors to the DocBook community.

To participate this year, we need two things:

1) Mentors: we need at least 5 or 6 people who are willing to participate as mentors.
2) Ideas: we need ideas for projects that students can work on.

I'm willing to be the organization administrator again this year, but I'm glad to hand over responsibility if someone else wants the job this year.

For the full schedule and more information about the program, go to:

February 20 is the deadline for applications. To participate, we need to have mentors lined up by February 9, which is the opening date for filing applications.

If you're interested in participating, you can reply to this message on the list or send me email directly at the address below.

Best regards,
Dick Hamilton
