Interested mentors / volunteers

Willing mentors must write to gsoc-admin(at)osgeo.org and will be sent a form to fill in.

Kickoff (virtual) meeting

  • 2017-09-25 at 20.00 UTC
  • On IRC in the #osgeo-gsoc channel on irc.freenode.net (connect directly in your browser via webchat)
  • agenda:
    • discuss ideas for tasks for the students
    • plan to share mentor invites to all OSGeo projects

Open questions

  • The how it works page doesn't mention how the word of this gets out to students, or does Google handle that?? How is promotion to students handled?? (Jeff)
  • Discuss the opportunity to create "virtual environments" for the students to play with, and eventually come up with a patch? For example, for tasks that would otherwise require access to sensitive systems, e.g. SAC, web pages, etc.. (madi)
  • It is not clear to me if it's possible to use more than one bug tracker or we must use the osgeo tracker for all the projects (madi)
  • Is it necessary for the students to pick from different "types" of tasks or they can decide to complete only one type? (madi)
