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)
- discuss ideas for tasks for the students
- plan to share mentor invites to all OSGeo projects
- Collect questions to discuss with other mentor orgs at mentor summit
- 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??
- 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..
- 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
- Is it necessary for the students to pick from different "types" of tasks or they can decide to complete only one type?
- When is the deadline to prepare the tasks: Oct 9th (Open source organizations can apply to be mentoring organizations) or Nov 28th (Contest opens for entries by student participants)?
- What is the minimum number of tasks we need to get ready by the deadline?
- How many mentors do other organizations have (to be on the safe side and not underestimate the work load)?
