This email is to be sent on the list when XWiki is applying for participation in a new GSoC edition.

Subject: [GSoD] XWiki is applying for Google Season of Docs 2019. Proposals and mentors needed!

Hello fellow XWiki community members,

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

The organization registration period has already started today (<date of registration start>) and the deadline is the <date of registration end> [2] (in almost 2 weeks).

1. We need to provide by then a list of proposals and assign mentors for the writers 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 (<current status on the number of existing proposals>) 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 emoticon_smile

2. We also need to submit the actual application [5] of the XWiki organization to participate to the GSoD 2019 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 GSoD guides and application forms, please find tips for writer [6] on XWiki's GSoD page.

Thanks for your help,
<Org Admin's name>
