As some of you might know, Google is organizing a Summer of Code in 2010 again: http://socghop.appspot.com/
It'd be quite amazing to have openSUSE be a mentoring organization again! For reference, we have a wiki page for our past participations: http://en.opensuse.org/Summer_of_Code
What do you think?
I'll assume for a bit that you think "yes, let's do it" :-) Now, how can you help? Here are some hints:
+ you can be one of the admin for openSUSE in GSoC 2010. This is mainly about making sure that we do everything we need to participate in GSoC, and make students feel comfortable in the project, and push a bit our contributors to publish ideas and mentor students :-)
+ you can create the wiki page for GSoC 2010. I guess the 2009 is a good basis, and starting with copy/paste is a good first step: http://en.opensuse.org/Summer_of_Code_2009
+ start thinking about ideas that students would work on.
