-All the original lists, now in BCC - with a new list in To.
Note: My webmail client is terrible and won't let me directly fix the
reply-to, so please mind it and lets move this traffic to the GSoC list.
I am replying to this everyone on the original thread as we need to work
together to make this deadline.
I have started an etherpad with the requirements for the Organizational
Application (due on Feb 9 - 2 days!):
Please add anything you have and suggest text! It is easier to edit than
create, so even if you aren't confident, toss some ideas on the pad.
English grammar and editing is easy - coming up with new text is not!
We also need to iterate ideas. Radka has has been working on the
updated wiki pages and you will find them at:
Main page: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/GSOC_2017
Please add your project ideas and additional edits there.
You may find some source material in the wiki and here:
Corey Sheldon - thank you for kicking off this thread.
I think we can still make this deadline with our powerful community
Thinking forward to 2018, I intend to make this process easier by
committing our final answers to something durable, like a pagure repo so
they don't get lost. This will help us not have to recreate all the
data next year. I have also added a calendar reminder for myself to
remember to start the application earlier and to start us on project
generation earlier. This snuck up on me this year. I firmly believe
that things only get to do that once :).
