So that we're all on the same page (a saying I loathe, but find myself
using frequently), here's what needs to be done:
1) The mentoring organization (that would be "the Lua community") needs
to put together an application which includes who the admin for the
project is, what license does the product use, how does the org
communicate, etc, etc, what to do if a mentor flakes out, how will we
choose our mentors, etc...
This is due by 12 March, but the earlier the better. Last year I was
involved in putting together a mentoring organization application which
we turned in on the last day. By then Google had already received more
applications than they were willing to support (although they have
expanded the program significantly each year).
I've created a wiki page () so that we can work on the application en
masse. If/when we decide that's a terrible way to write the
application....well, we'll cross that bridge when we come to it :)
2) We need a list of project ideas. There are two^h^h^hthree things
this list does: a) list projects we want to have worked on (duh) and b)
serves as advertising of our organization (i.e. hey look at all the cool
things so-and-so has going) and c) sparks ideas in students' heads
because students are allowed/encouraged to submit their own proposals.
I've created a wiki page
(http://lua-users.org/wiki/GoogleSummerOfCodeOhEight) for people to
start listing possible projects --- and might even get around to putting
some ideas on it. I encourage to list yourself as mentor _if_ you
want. If not, we'll find someone (or not).
