Hey Sally & Co.,

this year we won't forget to provide you with some infos on our GSoC endeavours. Yesterday, we have
been accepted as a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code 2012 [1],[2]. This means that
over the summer, our committers will mentor students that are sponsored by Google and will be
working on our projects. The program helps us not only to get some code written but also to
introduce students into open source development and hopefully recruit some new long-term committers.
More information on the program is available at [3]. Students are now encouraged to discuss ideas
with the respective projects and begin drafting proposals. An extensive list of already existing
project ideas is available at [4]. The actual application phase is from 03/26 until 04/06, Coding
will take place from 05/21 to 08/20. See [5] for the detailed timeline.

Can you please run any press release past us (dev-/6JGXy0y6WP1N9kud6OZbmD2FQJk+8+***@public.gmane.org) before publishing?

Thanks,

Uli

Hey Sally,

A prompt note saying that we've been accepted and that this is a great opportunity for us with
pointers to our ideas list and ***@community for further questions would be nice.

Thanks,

Uli
Thanks, Uli. That's great news!
I'll definitely run anything formal by you, as well as a heads-up that I'll be sending any tweets
out, for example the GSoC application dates, as I'll point to the relevant Apache resources.
For this week, is there anything that you need from us? Anything urgent?
Cheers,
Sally

Thanks, Uli.
Perhaps this is best presented as a blog post, from which we can publicize/tweet, etc.
Do you --or any of the ComDev folks-- have Roller editing access for blogs.apache.org? Has anything been sent to announce-1oDqGaOF3Lkdnm+***@public.gmane.org in the past?
If not, that's OK, I can help with getting the word out, but suggest you consider doing so for easy status updates, etc.
Chat soon!

AFAIR, no. I think at the moment committers@ is more appropriate, but
once student applications open, announce@ might be worth hitting.

The idea is to make students aware of our projects so announce@ is more appropriate IMO.

Sally,

I drafted a blog post on the comdev blog and invited you to work on that draft with me. Getting the
word out is the most important thing right now. Student application starts next week and we want to
have as much coverage as possible until then.

Sorry. I didn't know that there was a difference between press release and announcement.

Of course. If you think that a press release won't reach our intended audience, then skip it. The
urgency is due to the fact that the application phase will start in two weeks and I'd like to spread
the word as early as possible.

Cheers,

Uli
Uli --help me understand the urgency. A press release doesn't necessarily reach (y)our intended
audience --participants.
I will write an announcement, put it out over the newswire, post it on the ASF Foundation Blog,
Of course, I will get the draft over to you (ComDev) for review prior to issuing. I'd love a quote
from the ComDev chair. Will Luciano be able to do this? If not, we can go without it...not required,
but nice to have.

Thanks, Uli.
I'll get on it. I have two press releases going out this morning, which creates a news logjam from a
media standpoint.
Are you OK with this going out tomorrow? If not, I'll get cracking on this after our 9AM ET release
goes out.
Cheers,
Sally

    Hey Sally & Co.,
    this year we won't forget to provide you with some infos on our GSoC endeavours. Yesterday, we have
    been accepted as a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code 2013 [1],[2]. This means that
    over the summer, our committers will mentor students that are sponsored by Google and will be
    working on our projects. The program helps us not only to get some code written but also to
    introduce students into open source development and hopefully recruit some new long-term committers.
    More information on the program is available at [3]. Students are now encouraged to discuss ideas
    with the respective projects and begin drafting proposals. An extensive list of already existing
    project ideas is available at [4]. The actual application phase is from April 24 until May 3, coding
    will take place from June 17 to September 23. See [5] for the detailed timeline.
    Thanks,
    Uli

Thanks, Lars.

Yes, I will write the blog posts, et. al. It won't hurt us to issue it over the newswire service. Once Uli clarified this, the type of announcement (format) became clearer to me.

I still have to get the thing written, so I'll be getting cracking soon. The Struts EOL announcement goes out in 20 minutes.

Cheers,
Sally

Hi,
have we ever done a press release about GSoC before?
I'm just wondering why this needs to be a press release instead of just
posting it on our blog, twitter account, announce lists?
cheers
Lars
Post by Sally Khudairi
Uli --help me understand the urgency. A press release doesn't necessarily reach (y)our intended audience --participants.
Of course, I will get the draft over to you (ComDev) for review prior to issuing. I'd love a quote from the ComDev chair. Will Luciano be able to do this? If not, we can go without it...not required, but nice to have.
Thanks,
Sally

that doesn't mean students can't approach projects not mentioned there. I'll compile a list from [4]

The Apache Software Foundation Community Development Project Welcomes Student Proposals for Google Summer of Code 2013

Hundreds of students mentored in “The Apache Way” of Open Source community leadership

Forest Hill, MD –9 April 2013– The Apache Software Foundation (ASF)'s Community Development (ComDev) project today announced its acceptance into the Google Summer of Code (GsoC) as a mentoring organization for the eighth consecutive year.

The ComDev team helps newcomers learn about the ASF's projects, governance, and activities, and guides them in becoming part of the meritocratic, all-volunteer Apache community.

Established in 2005, the Google Summer of Code offers student developers from around the word stipends to write code for various Open Source software projects over a three month period. 

The ASF has actively participated in GSoC since the program's inception, mentoring 30-45 students each year, and providing exposure to real-world software and community development “The Apache Way”.

Countless GSoC students mentored by the Apache community continue to be long-term code committers on a variety of Apache projects. Some active program participants have even been elected as members of the ASF.
  
This year, dozens of Apache projects have committed to mentoring GSoC students. They include Accumulo, Airavata, Axiom, Bloodhound, CloudStack, CouchDB, Crunch, Giraph, Gora, Hama, Hive, Isis, Jena, Lenya, Lucene, Mahout, ManifoldCF, Mesos, Nutch, ODE, OpenMeetings, OpenOffice, Pig, Rat, SIS, Sling, Solr, Stanbol, Tika, VXQuery, Wookie, XalanJ, and XercesJ. 

The ComDev team invite GSoC students to propose application ideas directly with all Apache project(s) of interest no later than Sunday, 21 April 2013. The ASF's more than 100 Top-Level Projects and nearly three dozen initiatives in the Apache Incubator are listed at  http://www.apache.org/ and http://incubator.apache.org/ respectively.

For more information on Apache Community Development and to get involved with Apache projects for GSoC, visit http://community.apache.org/gsoc.html

Details on the Google Summer of Code is available at http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/homepage/google/gsoc2013

Just in case it is missed I should add that there appears to be a

Hey Sally & Co.,
this year we won't forget to provide you with some infos on our GSoC endeavours. Yesterday, we have
been accepted as a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code 2015 [1],[2]. This means that
over the summer, our committers will mentor students that are sponsored by Google and will be
working on our projects. The program helps us not only to get some code written but also to
introduce students into open source development and hopefully recruit some new long-term committers.
More information on the program is available at [3]. Students are now encouraged to discuss ideas
with the respective projects and begin drafting proposals. An extensive list of already existing
project ideas is available at [4]. The actual application phase is from March 16 until March 27, coding
will take place from May 25 to August 21. See [5] for the detailed timeline.
Thanks,
Uli

Hi Sally,

yes, I'm the GSoC lead again.

I don't know who from ComDev will be at ApacheCon but I guess at least Ross will. There's nothing
planned at the moment.

Cheers,

Uli
Thanks, Uli.
I did post about it in our weekly news round-up.
Happy to work with you on a press release. Who is the ASF lead on GSoC. You?
Who from ComDev will be at ApacheCon? Are you planning to do something special there?
Cheers,
Sally

Sally we could weave this into the diversity angle, as a reminder I intend to use the state of the feather to acknowledge that we have mostly failed to move the needle on diversity in our community, that very little works (GSoC is a good example of something that does work), accept we don’t have significant cash resources to make a big difference and therefore we have invited TEALs to present, organize a BOF and have a table in the expo area. TEALs help get people like our vast army of volunteers into high schools to help improve CS education. My hope is that by supporting activities like this we can have a small impact on the quality and breadth of CS education for those coming to us as contributors in later years.

What do you think? If this works for you I could link you to the TEALs people to help with content for a blog.

Oh, and I will be at ApacheCon.

Just a quick question on this.
Seeing that there will be some members of ComDev as well as PMCs at ApacheCon, is it likely that any in-person mentoring/hackathon/MeetUps/* will take place there?
I know it's not common practice for GSoC, but I was curious if we'd be open to anything like that. Humans huddling and all...

over the summer, our committers will mentor students that are sponsored by Google and will be
working on our projects. The program helps us not only to get some code written but also to
introduce students into open source development and hopefully recruit some new long-term committers.
More information on the program is available at [3]. Students are now encouraged to discuss ideas
with the respective projects and begin drafting proposals. An extensive list of already existing
project ideas is available at [4]. The actual application phase is from March 16 until March 27,
coding
will take place from May 25 to August 21. See [5] for the detailed timeline.
Thanks,

Got it. Just thought that since we have an opportunity to socialize, that we could do something.

Thanks for following up on this, Uli! I'll get the draft to you this weekend.

Chat soon,
Sally

Hi Sally,

probably not. Accepted student projects will only be announced on April 27, long after ApacheCon is
over.

Cheers,

Uli
Post by Sally Khudairi
Just a quick question on this.
Seeing that there will be some members of ComDev as well as PMCs at ApacheCon, is it likely that any in-person mentoring/hackathon/MeetUps/* will take place there?
I know it's not common practice for GSoC, but I was curious if we'd be open to anything like that. Humans huddling and all...
Thanks,Sally

Hi Sally,
I am sure Ross and few others from ComDev will also be there at ApacheCon and should be able to provide details on GSoC at ASF. I will be there as well and also have a talk accepted on the same topic - http://sched.co/2P6f
Please let me know if you would like to promote anything specific on GSoC, I will be happy to help and will appreciate your efforts.
Suresh
Perfect, thanks!
Cheers,
Uli
Got it. OK.
Let me pull something together and get back to you in a day or so. Does that work for you?
Cheers,
Sally

Hi Sally,
yes, I'm the GSoC lead again.
I don't know who from ComDev will be at ApacheCon but I guess at least Ross will. There's nothing
planned at the moment.
Cheers,
Uli
Thanks, Uli.
I did post about it in our weekly news round-up.
Happy to work with you on a press release. Who is the ASF lead on GSoC. You?
Who from ComDev will be at ApacheCon? Are you planning to do something special there?

Whaaaaat?

Really? I had it in the "Did You Know?" section last week as 10th also.


AND, more importantly, if my calculations are off, then in

https://blogs.apache.org/foundation/date/20141119


the 2013 entry as "eighth consecutive year" is wrong too.

Who has the correct count? It really is 11? Not that I don't trust you, I now am feeling quite lost.

Cheers,
Sally

Greg,

I'd like to put a placeholder for a quote for you in the announcement as well (the lead quote will be coming from Uli).

How would you like to have your attribution described in relation to GSoC? "ASF Vice Chairman and @@WHATEXACTLY"

Of course, I'll be happy to get a quote directly from you (vs. having to de-Sally-fy my proposed blurb) :-)

If you don't want to be quoted, that's OK; I can use Ross as backup.

Thanks so much,

Sally

Sure, that sounds great! ... are you looking for something like "co-creator

mouthful, but is that the direction you're thinking?

And please go ahead an draft up a quote. I'm not quite sure the angle

That works --better to be a bit wordy and clear vs. brief and vague <g>
We can always write "QUOTE," said Greg Stein, ASF Vice Chairman (and co-creator of the GSoC program, while working at Google in 2005).

Now for the quote itself... I'll put that in the draft that I'll be sending over later.

Hey Sally & Co.,
this year we won't forget to provide you with some infos on our GSoC endeavours. Yesterday, we have
been accepted as a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code 2015 [1],[2]. This means that
over the summer, our committers will mentor students that are sponsored by Google and will be
working on our projects. The program helps us not only to get some code written but also to
introduce students into open source development and hopefully recruit some new long-term committers.
More information on the program is available at [3]. Students are now encouraged to discuss ideas
with the respective projects and begin drafting proposals. An extensive list of already existing
project ideas is available at [4]. The actual application phase is from March 16 until March 27, coding
will take place from May 25 to August 21. See [5] for the detailed timeline.
Thanks,
Uli

Hi everyone --as promised, below is the draft announcement.

Please review and forward any additions/corrections no later than 5PM ET tomorrow (Monday) in order for us to announce on Tuesday. Should we be able to finalize before then (by 9PM ET TODAY), we can go live Monday morning if you'd like.
Also, if someone can please update the ASF boilerplate at http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/org2/google/gsoc2015/apache to the one at the bottom of the draft announcement (below), that would be great.

Thanks so much,

DRAFT :: NOT FOR DISSEMINATION

The Apache Software Foundation Accepted as a Google Summer of Code 2015 Mentoring Organization


Hundreds of students mentored in "The Apache Way" of community-driven development since the program's inception in 2005.

Forest Hill, MD –17 March 2015– The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today that it has been accepted as a Google Summer of Code (GSoC) mentoring organization for the 11th consecutive year.

The Google Summer of Code program offers student developers stipends to write code for various Open Source projects over a three month period. This year, students will be paired with mentors from 137 Open Source, free software, and technology-related groups that include CERN, GNU Project, KDE, MIT Media Lab, WikiMedia Foundation, and many more.

The ASF was amongst the initial 39 organizations selected to participate in the very first GSoC in 2005, and has participated every year since. At the ASF, the GSoC program is overseen by the Apache Community Development project, which comprises volunteers who help guide newcomers to The Apache Software Foundation, provide insight and advice on The Apache Way of meritocratic development, including how to contribute to Apache projects and to the Open Source community at-large.

"Over the summer, Apache Committers will mentor students that are sponsored by Google and will be working on many of our projects," said Ulrich Stärk, Vice President of Community Development at the ASF. "The program helps us to not only get some great code written, but also to introduce students into Open Source development and hopefully recruit some new long-term Committers."

Now through 27 March, students are encouraged to discuss ideas with mentoring organizations and begin drafting proposals for those projects of interest. Coding will begin 25 May and end 21 August. Thus far, 33 ideas have been proposed for Apache projects in Big Data, Cloud, Enterprise Integration, Enterprise Search, Project Management, Semantic Web & Linked Data, along with other categories. The complete Apache "Ideas Page" is at http://s.apache.org/cDg

"GSoC gives students the chance to work on industry-leading Open Source projects, collaborate with diverse communities, and gain real world experience related to their academic pursuits," added Stärk. "We are proud to have mentored so many talented students over the years, and furthered our mission of providing software products for the public good. It's a rewarding experience both for the students and the Apache community at-large."

Since the program's inception, GSoC has brought together over 8,500 successful student participants from over countries and over 8,000 mentors from 109 countries worldwide to produce over 55 million lines of code.

"Being accepted once again as a Google Summer of Code mentoring organization reinforces The Apache Software Foundation's leadership in community-driven development," said ASF Vice Chairman Greg Stein, who, in 2005 co-created the GSoC program while working at Google. "Hundreds of students have been mentored in 'The Apache Way' --many have continued on to become long-term code committers on a variety of Apache projects, with some active program participants elected as ASF Members."

Information on the ASF's participation in Google Summer of Code is available at http://community.apache.org/gsoc.html

That works --better to be a bit wordy and clear vs. brief and vague <g>

We can always write "QUOTE," said Greg Stein, ASF Vice Chairman (and co-creator of the GSoC program, while working at Google in 2005).


Now for the quote itself... I'll put that in the draft that I'll be sending over later.

And please go ahead an draft up a quote. I'm not quite sure the angle you're looking at, so best if you go first :-)

I'd make it more clear that March 27 is the student application *deadline*. To me "begin drafting"
sounds like they could start only then (but then I'm not a native speaker so it could totally be OK
to write it like that).

August. Thus far, 33 ideas have been proposed for Apache projects in Big Data, Cloud, Enterprise
Integration, Enterprise Search, Project Management, Semantic Web & Linked Data, along with other
categories. The complete Apache "Ideas Page" is at http://s.apache.org/cDg
That sounds a bit as if students have already submitted ideas for projects, which is not the case.
We (our mentors) have created a list of project ideas (the official URL is
http://s.apache.org/gsoc2015ideas) from which students may choose (or better yet, come up with
something on their own). Currently that list has 129 entries.

Sorry. I didn't know that there was a difference between press release and announcement.

Of course. If you think that a press release won't reach our intended audience, then skip it. The
urgency is due to the fact that the application phase will start in two weeks and I'd like to spread
the word as early as possible.

Cheers,

Uli
Uli --help me understand the urgency. A press release doesn't necessarily reach (y)our intended
audience --participants.
I will write an announcement, put it out over the newswire, post it on the ASF Foundation Blog,
Of course, I will get the draft over to you (ComDev) for review prior to issuing. I'd love a quote
from the ComDev chair. Will Luciano be able to do this? If not, we can go without it...not required,
but nice to have.

The Apache Software Foundation Community Development Project Welcomes Student Proposals for Google
Summer of Code 2013
Hundreds of students mentored in “The Apache Way” of Open Source community leadership
Forest Hill, MD –9 April 2013– The Apache Software Foundation (ASF)'s Community Development (ComDev)
project today announced its acceptance into the Google Summer of Code (GsoC) as a mentoring
organization for the eighth consecutive year.
The ComDev team helps newcomers learn about the ASF's projects, governance, and activities, and
guides them in becoming part of the meritocratic, all-volunteer Apache community.
Established in 2005, the Google Summer of Code offers student developers from around the word
stipends to write code for various Open Source software projects over a three month period.
The ASF has actively participated in GSoC since the program's inception, mentoring 30-45 students
each year, and providing exposure to real-world software and community development “The Apache Way”.
Countless GSoC students mentored by the Apache community continue to be long-term code committers on
a variety of Apache projects. Some active program participants have even been elected as members of
the ASF.
This year, dozens of Apache projects have committed to mentoring GSoC students. They include
Accumulo, Airavata, Axiom, Bloodhound, CloudStack, CouchDB, Crunch, Giraph, Gora, Hama, Hive, Isis,

The Apache Software Foundation Community Development Project Welcomes Student Proposals for Google
Summer of Code 2013
Hundreds of students mentored in “The Apache Way” of Open Source community leadership
Forest Hill, MD –9 April 2013– The Apache Software Foundation (ASF)'s Community Development (ComDev)
project today announced its acceptance into the Google Summer of Code (GsoC) as a mentoring
organization for the eighth consecutive year.
The ComDev team helps newcomers learn about the ASF's projects, governance, and activities, and
guides them in becoming part of the meritocratic, all-volunteer Apache community.
Established in 2005, the Google Summer of Code offers student developers from around the word
stipends to write code for various Open Source software projects over a three month period.
The ASF has actively participated in GSoC since the program's inception, mentoring 30-45 students
each year, and providing exposure to real-world software and community development “The Apache Way”.
Countless GSoC students mentored by the Apache community continue to be long-term code committers on
a variety of Apache projects. Some active program participants have even been elected as members of
the ASF.
This year, dozens of Apache projects have committed to mentoring GSoC students. They include
Accumulo, Airavata, Axiom, Bloodhound, CloudStack, CouchDB, Crunch, Giraph, Gora, Hama, Hive, Isis,
Jena, Lenya, Lucene, Mahout, ManifoldCF, Mesos, Nutch, ODE, OpenMeetings, OpenOffice, Pig, Rat, SIS,
Sling, Solr, Stanbol, Tika, VXQuery, Wookie, XalanJ, and XercesJ.
Make clear that this list isn't exclusive. Maybe "They include but are not limited to..."?

Just in case it is missed I should add that there appears to be a
mistake in the paragraph beginning "Established in 2005," where "around
the word" should read "around the world".

Cheers

The Apache Software Foundation Community Development Project Welcomes Student Proposals for Google
Summer of Code 2013
Hundreds of students mentored in “The Apache Way” of Open Source community leadership
Forest Hill, MD –9 April 2013– The Apache Software Foundation (ASF)'s Community Development (ComDev)
project today announced its acceptance into the Google Summer of Code (GsoC) as a mentoring
organization for the eighth consecutive year.
The ComDev team helps newcomers learn about the ASF's projects, governance, and activities, and
guides them in becoming part of the meritocratic, all-volunteer Apache community.
Established in 2005, the Google Summer of Code offers student developers from around the word
stipends to write code for various Open Source software projects over a three month period.
The ASF has actively participated in GSoC since the program's inception, mentoring 30-45 students
each year, and providing exposure to real-world software and community development “The Apache Way”.
Countless GSoC students mentored by the Apache community continue to be long-term code committers on
a variety of Apache projects. Some active program participants have even been elected as members of
the ASF.
This year, dozens of Apache projects have committed to mentoring GSoC students. They include
Accumulo, Airavata, Axiom, Bloodhound, CloudStack, CouchDB, Crunch, Giraph, Gora, Hama, Hive, Isis,
Jena, Lenya, Lucene, Mahout, ManifoldCF, Mesos, Nutch, ODE, OpenMeetings, OpenOffice, Pig, Rat, SIS,
Sling, Solr, Stanbol, Tika, VXQuery, Wookie, XalanJ, and XercesJ.
Make clear that this list isn't exclusive. Maybe "They include but are not limited to..."?
Post by Sally Khudairi
The ComDev team invite GSoC students to propose application ideas directly with all Apache
project(s) of interest no later than Sunday, 21 April 2013. The ASF's more than 100 Top-Level
Projects and nearly three dozen initiatives in the Apache Incubator are listed at
http://www.apache.org/ and http://incubator.apache.org/ respectively.
"The ComDev team recommends GSoC students to discuss application ideas directly with all Apache
project(s) of interest before the official start of the application phase on Monday, 22 April 2013."

Thanks Dave --you are correct on both fronts.

This is also why both the TLP list and Incubator projects/URLs are mentioned.

The Apache Software Foundation Community Development Project Welcomes Student Proposals for Google
Summer of Code 2013
Hundreds of students mentored in “The Apache Way” of Open Source community leadership
Forest Hill, MD –9 April 2013– The Apache Software Foundation (ASF)'s Community Development (ComDev)
project today announced its acceptance into the Google Summer of Code (GsoC) as a mentoring
organization for the eighth consecutive year.
The ComDev team helps newcomers learn about the ASF's projects, governance, and activities, and
guides them in becoming part of the meritocratic, all-volunteer Apache community.
Established in 2005, the Google Summer of Code offers student developers from around the word
stipends to write code for various Open Source software projects over a three month period.
The ASF has actively participated in GSoC since the program's inception, mentoring 30-45 students
each year, and providing exposure to real-world software and community development “The Apache Way”.
Countless GSoC students mentored by the Apache community continue to be long-term code committers on
a variety of Apache projects. Some active program participants have even been elected as members of
the ASF.
This year, dozens of Apache projects have committed to mentoring GSoC students. They include
Accumulo, Airavata, Axiom, Bloodhound, CloudStack, CouchDB, Crunch, Giraph, Gora, Hama, Hive, Isis,
Jena, Lenya, Lucene, Mahout, ManifoldCF, Mesos, Nutch, ODE, OpenMeetings, OpenOffice, Pig, Rat, SIS,
Sling, Solr, Stanbol, Tika, VXQuery, Wookie, XalanJ, and XercesJ.
Make clear that this list isn't exclusive. Maybe "They include but are not limited to..."?
Not that it should matter for this, but some of these projects are Incubator podlings.

The ComDev team invite GSoC students to propose application ideas directly with all Apache
project(s) of interest no later than Sunday, 21 April 2013. The ASF's more than 100 Top-Level
Projects and nearly three dozen initiatives in the Apache Incubator are listed at
http://www.apache.org/ and http://incubator.apache.org/ respectively.
"The ComDev team recommends GSoC students to discuss application ideas directly with all Apache
project(s) of interest before the official start of the application phase on Monday, 22 April 2013."

Hi Sally,
I am sure Ross and few others from ComDev will also be there at ApacheCon and should be able to provide details on GSoC at ASF. I will be there as well and also have a talk accepted on the same topic - http://sched.co/2P6f

Please let me know if you would like to promote anything specific on GSoC, I will be happy to help and will appreciate your efforts.

Sally we could weave this into the diversity angle, as a reminder I intend to use the state of the feather to acknowledge that we have mostly failed to move the needle on diversity in our community, that very little works (GSoC is a good example of something that does work), accept we don’t have significant cash resources to make a big difference and therefore we have invited TEALs to present, organize a BOF and have a table in the expo area. TEALs help get people like our vast army of volunteers into high schools to help improve CS education. My hope is that by supporting activities like this we can have a small impact on the quality and breadth of CS education for those coming to us as contributors in later years.

What do you think? If this works for you I could link you to the TEALs people to help with content for a blog.

Oh, and I will be at ApacheCon.

Hi Ross --a quick follow-up on this.
As you may have been following our emails, we're aiming to issue the ASF press release tomorrow. How would you like to go about integrating the TEALs angle? Should this be something we work around for ApacheCon? Or did you have something else in mind?
I'm happy to take the conversation off-list whilst we sort out the details.
Thanks again,Sally

Sally we could weave this into the diversity angle, as a reminder I intend to use the state of the feather to acknowledge that we have mostly failed to move the needle on diversity in our community, that very little works (GSoC is a good example of something that does work), accept we don’t have significant cash resources to make a big difference and therefore we have invited TEALs to present, organize a BOF and have a table in the expo area. TEALs help get people like our vast army of volunteers into high schools to help improve CS education. My hope is that by supporting activities like this we can have a small impact on the quality and breadth of CS education for those coming to us as contributors in later years.   What do you think? If this works for you I could link you to the TEALs people to help with content for a blog.   Oh, and I will be at ApacheCon.   Microsoft Open Technologies, Inc.

The very first year was 2005. Thus, 2015 would be the 11th GSoC.

Hey Sally & Co.,
this year we won't forget to provide you with some infos on our GSoC endeavours. Yesterday, we have
been accepted as a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code 2015 [1],[2]. This means that
over the summer, our committers will mentor students that are sponsored by Google and will be
working on our projects. The program helps us not only to get some code written but also to
introduce students into open source development and hopefully recruit some new long-term committers.
More information on the program is available at [3]. Students are now encouraged to discuss ideas
with the respective projects and begin drafting proposals. An extensive list of already existing
project ideas is available at [4]. The actual application phase is from March 16 until March 27, coding
will take place from May 25 to August 21. See [5] for the detailed timeline.
Thanks,
Uli

Hi everyone --as promised, below is the draft announcement.
Please review and forward any additions/corrections no later than 5PM ET tomorrow (Monday) in
order for us to announce on Tuesday. Should we be able to finalize before then (by 9PM ET TODAY),
we can go live Monday morning if you'd like. Also, if someone can please update the ASF
boilerplate at http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/org2/google/gsoc2015/apache to the one at the
bottom of the draft announcement (below), that would be great.
Will do.

DRAFT :: NOT FOR DISSEMINATION
The Apache Software Foundation Accepted as a Google Summer of Code 2015 Mentoring Organization
Hundreds of students mentored in "The Apache Way" of community-driven development since the
program's inception in 2005.
Forest Hill, MD –17 March 2015– The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer
developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source projects and initiatives,
announced today that it has been accepted as a Google Summer of Code (GSoC) mentoring
organization for the 11th consecutive year.
The Google Summer of Code program offers student developers stipends to write code for various
Open Source projects over a three month period. This year, students will be paired with mentors
from 137 Open Source, free software, and technology-related groups that include CERN, GNU
Project, KDE, MIT Media Lab, WikiMedia Foundation, and many more.
The ASF was amongst the initial 39 organizations selected to participate in the very first GSoC
in 2005, and has participated every year since. At the ASF, the GSoC program is overseen by the
Apache Community Development project, which comprises volunteers who help guide newcomers to The
Apache Software Foundation, provide insight and advice on The Apache Way of meritocratic
development, including how to contribute to Apache projects and to the Open Source community
at-large.
"Over the summer, Apache Committers will mentor students that are sponsored by Google and will be
working on many of our projects," said Ulrich StÀrk, Vice President of Community Development at
the ASF. "The program helps us to not only get some great code written, but also to introduce
students into Open Source development and hopefully recruit some new long-term Committers."
Now through 27 March, students are encouraged to discuss ideas with mentoring organizations and
begin drafting proposals for those projects of interest. Coding will begin 25 May and end 21
I'd make it more clear that March 27 is the student application *deadline*. To me "begin drafting"
sounds like they could start only then (but then I'm not a native speaker so it could totally be OK
to write it like that).

That sounds a bit as if students have already submitted ideas for projects, which is not the case.
We (our mentors) have created a list of project ideas (the official URL is

something on their own). Currently that list has 129 entries.

"GSoC gives students the chance to work on industry-leading Open Source projects, collaborate
with diverse communities, and gain real world experience related to their academic pursuits,"
added StÀrk. "We are proud to have mentored so many talented students over the years, and
furthered our mission of providing software products for the public good. It's a rewarding
experience both for the students and the Apache community at-large."
Since the program's inception, GSoC has brought together over 8,500 successful student
participants from over countries and over 8,000 mentors from 109 countries worldwide to produce
over 55 million lines of code.
"Being accepted once again as a Google Summer of Code mentoring organization reinforces The
Apache Software Foundation's leadership in community-driven development," said ASF Vice Chairman
Greg Stein, who, in 2005 co-created the GSoC program while working at Google. "Hundreds of
students have been mentored in 'The Apache Way' --many have continued on to become long-term code
committers on a variety of Apache projects, with some active program participants elected as ASF
Members."

Hey Sally & Co.,
this year we won't forget to provide you with some infos on our GSoC endeavours.
Yesterday, we have been accepted as a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code
2015 [1],[2]. This means that over the summer, our committers will mentor students that
are sponsored by Google and will be working on our projects. The program helps us not
only to get some code written but also to introduce students into open source development
and hopefully recruit some new long-term committers. More information on the program is
available at [3]. Students are now encouraged to discuss ideas with the respective
projects and begin drafting proposals. An extensive list of already existing project
ideas is available at [4]. The actual application phase is from March 16 until March 27,
coding will take place from May 25 to August 21. See [5] for the detailed timeline.

DRAFT :: NOT FOR DISSEMINATION
The Apache Software Foundation Accepted as a Google Summer of Code 2015 Mentoring Organization
Hundreds of students mentored in "The Apache Way" of community-driven development since the
program's inception in 2005.
Forest Hill, MD –17 March 2015– The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer
developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source projects and initiatives,
announced today that it has been accepted as a Google Summer of Code (GSoC) mentoring
organization for the 11th consecutive year.
The Google Summer of Code program offers student developers stipends to write code for various
Open Source projects over a three month period. This year, students will be paired with mentors
from 137 Open Source, free software, and technology-related groups that include CERN, GNU
Project, KDE, MIT Media Lab, WikiMedia Foundation, and many more.
The ASF was amongst the initial 39 organizations selected to participate in the very first GSoC
in 2005, and has participated every year since. At the ASF, the GSoC program is overseen by the
Apache Community Development project, which comprises volunteers who help guide newcomers to The
Apache Software Foundation, provide insight and advice on The Apache Way of meritocratic
development, including how to contribute to Apache projects and to the Open Source community
at-large.

We can always write "QUOTE," said Greg Stein, ASF Vice Chairman (and co-creator of the GSoC

Hey Sally & Co.,
this year we won't forget to provide you with some infos on our GSoC endeavours.
Yesterday, we have been accepted as a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code
2015 [1],[2]. This means that over the summer, our committers will mentor students that
are sponsored by Google and will be working on our projects. The program helps us not
only to get some code written but also to introduce students into open source development
and hopefully recruit some new long-term committers. More information on the program is
available at [3]. Students are now encouraged to discuss ideas with the respective
projects and begin drafting proposals. An extensive list of already existing project
ideas is available at [4]. The actual application phase is from March 16 until March 27,
coding will take place from May 25 to August 21. See [5] for the detailed timeline.

DRAFT :: NOT FOR DISSEMINATION
The Apache Software Foundation Accepted as a Google Summer of Code 2015 Mentoring Organization
Hundreds of students mentored in "The Apache Way" of community-driven development since the program's inception in 2005.
Forest Hill, MD –17 March 2015– The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today that it has been accepted as a Google Summer of Code (GSoC) mentoring organization for the 11th consecutive year.
The Google Summer of Code program offers student developers stipends to write code for various Open Source projects over a three month period. This year, students will be paired with mentors from 137 Open Source, free software, and technology-related groups that include CERN, GNU Project, KDE, MIT Media Lab, WikiMedia Foundation, and many more.
The ASF was amongst the initial 39 organizations selected to participate in the very first GSoC in 2005, and has participated every year since. At the ASF, the GSoC program is overseen by the Apache Community Development project, which comprises volunteers who help guide newcomers to The Apache Software Foundation, provide insight and advice on The Apache Way of meritocratic development, including how to contribute to Apache projects and to the Open Source community at-large.
"Over the summer, Apache Committers will mentor students that are sponsored by Google and will be working on many of our projects," said Ulrich Stärk, Vice President of Community Development at the ASF. "The program helps us to not only get some great code written, but also to introduce students into Open Source development and hopefully recruit some new long-term Committers."
Students are encouraged to discuss ideas with mentoring organizations and finalize proposals for projects of interest by the 27 March deadline. ASF mentors have proposed 129 ideas for Apache projects in Big Data, Cloud, Enterprise Integration, Enterprise Search, Project Management, Semantic Web & Linked Data, along with other categories. Students may choose from the Apache "Ideas Page" at http://s.apache.org/gsoc2015ideas or suggest their own project for approval. Coding will begin 25 May and end 21 August.
"GSoC gives students the chance to work on industry-leading Open Source projects, collaborate with diverse communities, and gain real world experience related to their academic pursuits," added Stärk. "We are proud to have mentored so many talented students over the years, and furthered our mission of providing software products for the public good. It's a rewarding experience both for the students and the Apache community at-large."
Since the program's inception, GSoC has brought together over 8,500 successful student participants from over countries and over 8,000 mentors from 109 countries worldwide to produce over 55 million lines of code.
"Being accepted once again as a Google Summer of Code mentoring organization reinforces The Apache Software Foundation's leadership in community-driven development," said ASF Vice Chairman Greg Stein, who, in 2005 co-created the GSoC program while working at Google. "Hundreds of students have been mentored in 'The Apache Way' --many have continued on to become long-term code committers on a variety of Apache projects, with some active program participants elected as ASF Members."
Information on the ASF's participation in Google Summer of Code is available at http://community.apache.org/gsoc.html

Thanks, Greg!
That works --better to be a bit wordy and clear vs. brief and vague <g>
We can always write "QUOTE," said Greg Stein, ASF Vice Chairman (and co-creator of the GSoC
program, while working at Google in 2005).
Now for the quote itself... I'll put that in the draft that I'll be sending over later.

Hey Sally & Co.,
this year we won't forget to provide you with some infos on our GSoC endeavours.
Yesterday, we have been accepted as a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code
2015 [1],[2]. This means that over the summer, our committers will mentor students that
are sponsored by Google and will be working on our projects. The program helps us not
only to get some code written but also to introduce students into open source development
and hopefully recruit some new long-term committers. More information on the program is
available at [3]. Students are now encouraged to discuss ideas with the respective
projects and begin drafting proposals. An extensive list of already existing project
ideas is available at [4]. The actual application phase is from March 16 until March 27,
coding will take place from May 25 to August 21. See [5] for the detailed timeline.

DRAFT :: NOT FOR DISSEMINATION
The Apache Software Foundation Accepted as a Google Summer of Code 2015
Mentoring Organization
Hundreds of students mentored in "The Apache Way" of community-driven
development since the program's inception in 2005.
Forest Hill, MD –17 March 2015– The Apache Software Foundation (ASF),
the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350
Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today that it has been
accepted as a Google Summer of Code (GSoC) mentoring organization for
the 11th consecutive year.
The Google Summer of Code program offers student developers stipends to
write code for various Open Source projects over a three month period.
This year, students will be paired with mentors from 137 Open Source,
free software, and technology-related groups that include CERN, GNU
Project, KDE, MIT Media Lab, WikiMedia Foundation, and many more.
The ASF was amongst the initial 39 organizations selected to participate
in the very first GSoC in 2005, and has participated every year since.
At the ASF, the GSoC program is overseen by the Apache Community
Development project, which comprises volunteers who help guide newcomers
to The Apache Software Foundation, provide insight and advice on The
Apache Way of meritocratic development, including how to contribute to
Apache projects and to the Open Source community at-large.
"Over the summer, Apache Committers will mentor students that are
sponsored by Google and will be working on many of our projects," said
Ulrich Stärk, Vice President of Community Development at the ASF. "The
program helps us to not only get some great code written, but also to
introduce students into Open Source development and hopefully recruit
some new long-term Committers."
Students are encouraged to discuss ideas with mentoring organizations
and finalize proposals for projects of interest by the 27 March
deadline. ASF mentors have proposed 129 ideas for Apache projects in Big
Data, Cloud, Enterprise Integration, Enterprise Search, Project
Management, Semantic Web & Linked Data, along with other categories.
Students may choose from the Apache "Ideas Page" at
http://s.apache.org/gsoc2015ideas or suggest their own project for
approval. Coding will begin 25 May and end 21 August.
"GSoC gives students the chance to work on industry-leading Open Source
projects, collaborate with diverse communities, and gain real world
experience related to their academic pursuits," added Stärk. "We are
proud to have mentored so many talented students over the years, and
furthered our mission of providing software products for the public
good. It's a rewarding experience both for the students and the Apache
community at-large."
Since the program's inception, GSoC has brought together over 8,500
successful student participants from over countries and over 8,000
mentors from 109 countries worldwide to produce over 55 million lines of
code.
"Being accepted once again as a Google Summer of Code mentoring

in 2005 co-created the GSoC program while working at Google. "Hundreds

The Apache Software Foundation Accepted as a Google Summer of Code 2015
Mentoring Organization
Hundreds of students mentored in "The Apache Way" of community-driven

Forest Hill, MD –17 March 2015– The Apache Software Foundation (ASF),
the all-volunteer
developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source

announced today that it has been accepted as a Google Summer of Code (GSoC) mentoring

begin 25 May and end 21 I'd make it more clear that March 27 is the
student application *deadline*. To me "begin drafting"
sounds like they could start only then (but then I'm not a native
speaker so it could totally be OK
to write it like that). > August. Thus far, 33 ideas have been proposed

Integration, Enterprise Search, Project Management, Semantic Web &
Linked Data, along with other
categories. The complete Apache "Ideas Page" is at
http://s.apache.org/cDg That sounds a bit as if students have already
submitted ideas for projects, which is not the case.
We (our mentors) have created a list of project ideas (the official URL
is http://s.apache.org/gsoc2015ideas) from which students may choose (or
better yet, come up with
something on their own). Currently that list has 129 entries. >

DRAFT :: NOT FOR DISSEMINATION
The Apache Software Foundation Accepted as a Google Summer of Code 2015
Mentoring Organization
Hundreds of students mentored in "The Apache Way" of community-driven
development since the
program's inception in 2005.
Forest Hill, MD –17 March 2015– The Apache Software Foundation (ASF),
the all-volunteer
developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source
projects and initiatives,
announced today that it has been accepted as a Google Summer of Code
(GSoC) mentoring
organization for the 11th consecutive year.
The Google Summer of Code program offers student developers stipends to
write code for various
Open Source projects over a three month period. This year, students
will be paired with mentors
from 137 Open Source, free software, and technology-related groups that
include CERN, GNU
Project, KDE, MIT Media Lab, WikiMedia Foundation, and many more.
The ASF was amongst the initial 39 organizations selected to
participate in the very first GSoC
in 2005, and has participated every year since. At the ASF, the GSoC
program is overseen by the
Apache Community Development project, which comprises volunteers who
help guide newcomers to The
Apache Software Foundation, provide insight and advice on The Apache
Way of meritocratic
development, including how to contribute to Apache projects and to the
Open Source community
at-large.
"Over the summer, Apache Committers will mentor students that are
sponsored by Google and will be
working on many of our projects," said Ulrich StÀrk, Vice President of
Community Development at
the ASF. "The program helps us to not only get some great code written,
but also to introduce
students into Open Source development and hopefully recruit some new
long-term Committers."
Now through 27 March, students are encouraged to discuss ideas with
mentoring organizations and
begin drafting proposals for those projects of interest. Coding will
begin 25 May and end 21 I'd make it more clear that March 27 is the
student application *deadline*. To me "begin drafting"
sounds like they could start only then (but then I'm not a native
speaker so it could totally be OK
to write it like that). > August. Thus far, 33 ideas have been proposed
for Apache projects in Big Data, Cloud, Enterprise
Post by Sally Khudairi
Integration, Enterprise Search, Project Management, Semantic Web &
Linked Data, along with other
categories. The complete Apache "Ideas Page" is at
http://s.apache.org/cDg That sounds a bit as if students have already
submitted ideas for projects, which is not the case.
We (our mentors) have created a list of project ideas (the official URL
is http://s.apache.org/gsoc2015ideas) from which students may choose (or
better yet, come up with
something on their own). Currently that list has 129 entries. >
Post by Sally Khudairi
"GSoC gives students the chance to work on industry-leading Open Source
projects, collaborate
with diverse communities, and gain real world experience related to
their academic pursuits,"
added StÀrk. "We are proud to have mentored so many talented students
over the years, and
furthered our mission of providing software products for the public
good. It's a rewarding
experience both for the students and the Apache community at-large."
Since the program's inception, GSoC has brought together over 8,500
successful student
participants from over countries and over 8,000 mentors from 109
countries worldwide to produce
over 55 million lines of code.
"Being accepted once again as a Google Summer of Code mentoring
organization reinforces The
Apache Software Foundation's leadership in community-driven
development," said ASF Vice Chairman
Greg Stein, who, in 2005 co-created the GSoC program while working at
Google. "Hundreds of
students have been mentored in 'The Apache Way' --many have continued
on to become long-term code
committers on a variety of Apache projects, with some active program
participants elected as ASF
Members."
Information on the ASF's participation in Google Summer of Code is
available at
http://community.apache.org/gsoc.html >
About The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) Established in 1999, the
all-volunteer Foundation
oversees more than 350 leading Open Source projects, including Apache
HTTP Server --the world's
most popular Web server software. Through the ASF's meritocratic
process known as "The Apache
Way," more than 500 individual Members and 4,500 Committers
successfully collaborate to develop
freely available enterprise-grade software, benefiting millions of
users worldwide: thousands of
software solutions are distributed under the Apache License; and the

DRAFT :: NOT FOR DISSEMINATION
The Apache Software Foundation Accepted as a Google Summer of Code 2015
Mentoring Organization
Hundreds of students mentored in "The Apache Way" of community-driven
development since the program's inception in 2005.
Forest Hill, MD –17 March 2015– The Apache Software Foundation (ASF),
the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350
Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today that it has been
accepted as a Google Summer of Code (GSoC) mentoring organization for
the 11th consecutive year.
The Google Summer of Code program offers student developers stipends to
write code for various Open Source projects over a three month period.
This year, students will be paired with mentors from 137 Open Source,
free software, and technology-related groups that include CERN, GNU
Project, KDE, MIT Media Lab, WikiMedia Foundation, and many more.
The ASF was amongst the initial 39 organizations selected to participate
in the very first GSoC in 2005, and has participated every year since.
At the ASF, the GSoC program is overseen by the Apache Community
Development project, which comprises volunteers who help guide newcomers
to The Apache Software Foundation, provide insight and advice on The
Apache Way of meritocratic development, including how to contribute to
Apache projects and to the Open Source community at-large.
"Over the summer, Apache Committers will mentor students that are
sponsored by Google and will be working on many of our projects," said
Ulrich StÀrk, Vice President of Community Development at the ASF. "The
program helps us to not only get some great code written, but also to
introduce students into Open Source development and hopefully recruit
some new long-term Committers."
Students are encouraged to discuss ideas with mentoring organizations
and finalize proposals for projects of interest by the 27 March
deadline. ASF mentors have proposed 129 ideas for Apache projects in Big
Data, Cloud, Enterprise Integration, Enterprise Search, Project
Management, Semantic Web & Linked Data, along with other categories.
Students may choose from the Apache "Ideas Page" at
http://s.apache.org/gsoc2015ideas or suggest their own project for
approval. Coding will begin 25 May and end 21 August.
"GSoC gives students the chance to work on industry-leading Open Source
projects, collaborate with diverse communities, and gain real world
experience related to their academic pursuits," added StÀrk. "We are
proud to have mentored so many talented students over the years, and
furthered our mission of providing software products for the public
good. It's a rewarding experience both for the students and the Apache
community at-large."
Since the program's inception, GSoC has brought together over 8,500
successful student participants from over countries and over 8,000
mentors from 109 countries worldwide to produce over 55 million lines of
code.
"Being accepted once again as a Google Summer of Code mentoring
organization reinforces The Apache Software Foundation's leadership in
community-driven development," said ASF Vice Chairman Greg Stein, who,
in 2005 co-created the GSoC program while working at Google. "Hundreds
of students have been mentored in 'The Apache Way' --many have continued
on to become long-term code committers on a variety of Apache projects,
with some active program participants elected as ASF Members."
Information on the ASF's participation in Google Summer of Code is
available at http://community.apache.org/gsoc.html

submitted ideas for projects, which is not the case.
We (our mentors) have created a list of project ideas (the official URL
is http://s.apache.org/gsoc2015ideas) from which students may choose (or
better yet, come up with
something on their own). Currently that list has 129 entries. >

The very first year was 2005. Thus, 2015 would be the 11th GSoC.
As one of the two people to launch/create GSoC, you can call me
authoritative on the dates :-P
Whaaaaat?
Post by Sally Khudairi
Really? I had it in the "Did You Know?" section last week as 10th
also.
AND, more importantly, if my calculations are off, then in
https://blogs.apache.org/foundation/date/20141119 >>>
the 2013 entry as "eighth consecutive year" is wrong too.
Who has the correct count? It really is 11? Not that I don't trust
you, I now am feeling
quite lost.

mentor students that
are sponsored by Google and will be working on our projects. The
program helps us not
only to get some code written but also to introduce students into
open source development
and hopefully recruit some new long-term committers. More
information on the program is
available at [3]. Students are now encouraged to discuss ideas with
the respective
projects and begin drafting proposals. An extensive list of already
existing project
ideas is available at [4]. The actual application phase is from
March 16 until March 27,
coding will take place from May 25 to August 21. See [5] for the
detailed timeline.
Can you please run any press release past us
publishing?
Thanks,

"GSoC gives students the chance to work on industry-leading Open Source
projects, collaborate
with diverse communities, and gain real world experience related to
their academic pursuits,"
added Stärk. "We are proud to have mentored so many talented students
over the years, and
furthered our mission of providing software products for the public
good. It's a rewarding
experience both for the students and the Apache community at-large."
Since the program's inception, GSoC has brought together over 8,500
successful student
participants from over countries and over 8,000 mentors from 109
countries worldwide to produce
over 55 million lines of code.
"Being accepted once again as a Google Summer of Code mentoring
organization reinforces The
Apache Software Foundation's leadership in community-driven
development," said ASF Vice Chairman
Greg Stein, who, in 2005 co-created the GSoC program while working at
Google. "Hundreds of
students have been mentored in 'The Apache Way' --many have continued
on to become long-term code
committers on a variety of Apache projects, with some active program
participants elected as ASF
Members."

DRAFT :: NOT FOR DISSEMINATION
The Apache Software Foundation Accepted as a Google Summer of Code 2015
Mentoring Organization
Hundreds of students mentored in "The Apache Way" of community-driven
development since the program's inception in 2005.
Forest Hill, MD &ndash;17 March 2015&ndash; The Apache Software Foundation (ASF),
the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350
Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today that it has been
accepted as a Google Summer of Code (GSoC) mentoring organization for
the 11th consecutive year.
The Google Summer of Code program offers student developers stipends to
write code for various Open Source projects over a three month period.
This year, students will be paired with mentors from 137 Open Source,
free software, and technology-related groups that include CERN, GNU
Project, KDE, MIT Media Lab, WikiMedia Foundation, and many more.
The ASF was amongst the initial 39 organizations selected to participate
in the very first GSoC in 2005, and has participated every year since.
At the ASF, the GSoC program is overseen by the Apache Community
Development project, which comprises volunteers who help guide newcomers
to The Apache Software Foundation, provide insight and advice on The
Apache Way of meritocratic development, including how to contribute to
Apache projects and to the Open Source community at-large.
"Over the summer, Apache Committers will mentor students that are
sponsored by Google and will be working on many of our projects," said
Ulrich StÀrk, Vice President of Community Development at the ASF. "The
program helps us to not only get some great code written, but also to
introduce students into Open Source development and hopefully recruit
some new long-term Committers."
Students are encouraged to discuss ideas with mentoring organizations
and finalize proposals for projects of interest by the 27 March
deadline. ASF mentors have proposed 129 ideas for Apache projects in Big
Data, Cloud, Enterprise Integration, Enterprise Search, Project
Management, Semantic Web & Linked Data, along with other categories.
Students may choose from the Apache "Ideas Page" at
http://s.apache.org/gsoc2015ideas or suggest their own project for
approval. Coding will begin 25 May and end 21 August.
"GSoC gives students the chance to work on industry-leading Open Source
projects, collaborate with diverse communities, and gain real world
experience related to their academic pursuits," added StÀrk. "We are
proud to have mentored so many talented students over the years, and
furthered our mission of providing software products for the public
good. It's a rewarding experience both for the students and the Apache
community at-large."
Since the program's inception, GSoC has brought together over 8,500
successful student participants from over countries and over 8,000
mentors from 109 countries worldwide to produce over 55 million lines of
code.
"Being accepted once again as a Google Summer of Code mentoring

in 2005 co-created the GSoC program while working at Google. "Hundreds

Hi everyone --as promised, below is the draft announcement.
Please review and forward any additions/corrections no later than 5PM
ET tomorrow (Monday) in
order for us to announce on Tuesday. Should we be able to finalize
before then (by 9PM ET TODAY),
we can go live Monday morning if you'd like. Also, if someone can

Sorry. Monday was birthday :-P ... but my apologies, I thought no response was an implicit ACK. I read it on Sunday and it looked great.

So, to be explicit: I re-read, and I'm good with those quotes! Thank you, Sally!

Thanks,

DRAFT :: NOT FOR DISSEMINATION
The Apache Software Foundation Accepted as a Google Summer of Code 2015
Mentoring Organization
Hundreds of students mentored in "The Apache Way" of community-driven
development since the program's inception in 2005.
Forest Hill, MD –17 March 2015– The Apache Software Foundation (ASF),
the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350
Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today that it has been
accepted as a Google Summer of Code (GSoC) mentoring organization for
the 11th consecutive year.
The Google Summer of Code program offers student developers stipends to
write code for various Open Source projects over a three month period.
This year, students will be paired with mentors from 137 Open Source,
free software, and technology-related groups that include CERN, GNU
Project, KDE, MIT Media Lab, WikiMedia Foundation, and many more.
The ASF was amongst the initial 39 organizations selected to participate
in the very first GSoC in 2005, and has participated every year since.
At the ASF, the GSoC program is overseen by the Apache Community
Development project, which comprises volunteers who help guide newcomers
to The Apache Software Foundation, provide insight and advice on The
Apache Way of meritocratic development, including how to contribute to
Apache projects and to the Open Source community at-large.
"Over the summer, Apache Committers will mentor students that are
sponsored by Google and will be working on many of our projects," said
Ulrich Stärk, Vice President of Community Development at the ASF. "The
program helps us to not only get some great code written, but also to
introduce students into Open Source development and hopefully recruit
some new long-term Committers."
Students are encouraged to discuss ideas with mentoring organizations
and finalize proposals for projects of interest by the 27 March
deadline. ASF mentors have proposed 129 ideas for Apache projects in Big
Data, Cloud, Enterprise Integration, Enterprise Search, Project
Management, Semantic Web & Linked Data, along with other categories.
Students may choose from the Apache "Ideas Page" at
http://s.apache.org/gsoc2015ideas or suggest their own project for
approval. Coding will begin 25 May and end 21 August.
"GSoC gives students the chance to work on industry-leading Open Source
projects, collaborate with diverse communities, and gain real world
experience related to their academic pursuits," added Stärk. "We are
proud to have mentored so many talented students over the years, and
furthered our mission of providing software products for the public
good. It's a rewarding experience both for the students and the Apache
community at-large."
Since the program's inception, GSoC has brought together over 8,500
successful student participants from over countries and over 8,000
mentors from 109 countries worldwide to produce over 55 million lines of
code.
"Being accepted once again as a Google Summer of Code mentoring
organization reinforces The Apache Software Foundation's leadership in
community-driven development," said ASF Vice Chairman Greg Stein, who,
in 2005 co-created the GSoC program while working at Google. "Hundreds
of students have been mentored in 'The Apache Way' --many have continued
on to become long-term code committers on a variety of Apache projects,
with some active program participants elected as ASF Members."
Information on the ASF's participation in Google Summer of Code is
available at http://community.apache.org/gsoc.html >>
About The Apache Software Foundation (ASF)

Hi everyone --as promised, below is the draft announcement.
Please review and forward any additions/corrections no later than 5PM
ET tomorrow (Monday) in
order for us to announce on Tuesday. Should we be able to finalize
before then (by 9PM ET TODAY),
we can go live Monday morning if you'd like. Also, if someone can

to write it like that). > August. Thus far, 33 ideas have been proposed

Integration, Enterprise Search, Project Management, Semantic Web &
Linked Data, along with other
categories. The complete Apache "Ideas Page" is at
http://s.apache.org/cDg That sounds a bit as if students have already
submitted ideas for projects, which is not the case.
We (our mentors) have created a list of project ideas (the official URL
is http://s.apache.org/gsoc2015ideas) from which students may choose (or
better yet, come up with
something on their own). Currently that list has 129 entries. >

Thanks, Greg!
That works --better to be a bit wordy and clear vs. brief and vague <g>
We can always write "QUOTE," said Greg Stein, ASF Vice Chairman (and
co-creator of the GSoC
program, while working at Google in 2005).
Now for the quote itself... I'll put that in the draft that I'll be
sending over later.

Sure, that sounds great! … are you looking for something like
"co-creator of the GSoC program,
while working at Google in 2005" ?? That's a bit of a mouthful, but is
that the direction you're
thinking?
And please go ahead an draft up a quote. I'm not quite sure the angle
you're looking at, so best
if you go first :-)
Thx, -g

I'd like to put a placeholder for a quote for you in the announcement
as well (the lead quote
will be coming from Uli).
How would you like to have your attribution described in relation to
GSoC? "ASF Vice Chairman
Of course, I'll be happy to get a quote directly from you (vs. having
to de-Sally-fy my
proposed blurb) :-)
If you don't want to be quoted, that's OK; I can use Ross as backup.
Thanks so much,

The very first year was 2005. Thus, 2015 would be the 11th GSoC.
As one of the two people to launch/create GSoC, you can call me
authoritative on the dates :-P
Whaaaaat?
Post by Sally Khudairi
Really? I had it in the "Did You Know?" section last week as 10th
also.
AND, more importantly, if my calculations are off, then in
https://blogs.apache.org/foundation/date/20141119 >>>
the 2013 entry as "eighth consecutive year" is wrong too.
Who has the correct count? It really is 11? Not that I don't trust
you, I now am feeling
quite lost.

Hey Sally & Co.,
this year we won't forget to provide you with some infos on our
GSoC endeavours.
Yesterday, we have been accepted as a mentoring organization for
Google Summer of Code
2015 [1],[2]. This means that over the summer, our committers will
mentor students that
are sponsored by Google and will be working on our projects. The
program helps us not
only to get some code written but also to introduce students into
open source development
and hopefully recruit some new long-term committers. More
information on the program is
available at [3]. Students are now encouraged to discuss ideas with
the respective
projects and begin drafting proposals. An extensive list of already
existing project
ideas is available at [4]. The actual application phase is from
March 16 until March 27,
coding will take place from May 25 to August 21. See [5] for the
detailed timeline.
Can you please run any press release past us
publishing?
Thanks,
Uli
