Announcing XWiki Organization Accepted Mail

Last modified by Thomas Mortagne on 2019/04/08 09:43

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

Subject: [GSoC] XWiki has been accepted to GSoC 2019!

Hi devs,

As most of you already know, XWiki has been accepted to Google Summer of Code 2019!

We currently have 12 project proposals and 8 mentors [1].

There <is/are [time] left> [2] before the student application period starts, so if others want to sign up as mentors and/or propose new GSoC projects for the students, please do so on the ideas list [1].

During this period, students are supposed to ask questions about the proposed projects so please don`t hesitate to welcome and help them out!

Another thing you can help with is to increase the list of "Onboarding" issues that we know about on jira.xwiki.org. You can use the label "Onboarding" and apply it to jira issues which you know for a fact that they would be easy to fix by someone new to XWiki. We`ve currently labeled quite a few issues with the "Onboarding" JIRA label [3] and are listing them on the guidelines [4] page to help students discover them more easily.

Thanks,
<Org Admin's name>
