[GSOC] XWiki is applying for GSoC 2018. Proposals and mentors needed!

Eduard Moraru
Hello fellow XWiki community members,

This year XWiki is planning to participate once more at Google's Summer of
Code [1].

The organization registration period has already started (January 4, 2018)
and the deadline is
January 23, 2018 [2] (in 1.5 weeks).

1. We need to provide by then a list of proposals and assign mentors for
the students that are going to implement them.

I would like to ask everybody that wants to participate as a mentor from
the XWiki organization to review the proposals [3] list (when projects are
being added) and add as many interesting proposals as possible.
The proposals can be either new, or they can be revived from previous
years. Just navigate to the previous years [4], find the proposal you like
and know about, go to its proposal page (click it) and press the "Clone to
this year" link. Now you can assign yourself as lead for that project,
update it's description if needed and wait for the student applications to
start pouring

2. We also need to submit the actual application [5] of the XWiki
organization to participate to the GSoC 2018 project so I would also like
to ask you to review it so that we have a better chance of being selected
into the program.

3. If you feel that you would like to help on improving XWiki's GSoC guides
and application forms, please find tips for students [6] on XWiki's GSoC
page, the student application form [7] and the lessons learned [8] from
previous years participations.

Thanks for your help,
