Title: XWiki has been accepted to GSoC 2020!
Category: News & Events
Tags: gsoc

Hi devs,

The [list of accepted organizations](https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/organizations/) has been published yesterday evening and XWiki has been accepted to Google Summer of Code <currentYear>!

We currently have [15 project proposals](https://dev.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/GoogleSummerOfCode/#HProposedProjects2829) and [10 mentors](https://dev.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/GoogleSummerOfCode/#HMentors2829).

There are about [3 weeks left](https://developers.google.com/open-source/gsoc/timeline) (March 16) 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](https://gsoc.xwiki.org).

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](https://jira.xwiki.org/issues/?jql=resolution%20%3D%20Unresolved%20AND%20labels%20%3D%20Onboarding) and are listing them on the [student guidelines page](https://dev.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/GoogleSummerOfCode/Guidelines#HIncreasingyourchancesofbeingacceptedasastudent) to help students discover them more easily.

Thanks,
<Org Admin's name>
