What is the main development mailing list for your organization? This question will be shown to students who would like to get more information about applying to your organization for GSoC 2011. If your organization uses more than one list, please make sure to include a description of the list so students know which to use.
What is the main IRC channel for your organization?
Does your organization have an application template you would like to see students use? If so, please provide it now. Please note that it is a very good idea to ask students to provide you with their contact information as part of your template. Their contact details will not be shared with you automatically via the GSoC 2011 site.
What criteria did you use to select the individuals who will act as mentors for your organization? Please be as specific as possible?
What is your plan for dealing with disappearing students?
While not full-proof, we will try our best to filter such students during the selection process. The amount of research, initiative, and community involvement a student has put in his/her proposal is often a good metric.
What is your plan for dealing with disappearing mentors?
We intend to nominate co-mentors who will act as a mentor in the absence of one.
What steps will you take to encourage students to interact with your project's community before, during and after the program?
The Vim community has always respected all kinds of discussion; the members are helpful. This provides for a friendly learning curve for the students, and keeps them motivated. We would request the student to discuss his/her proposals, or starting patches on the list and get a feel of the community.
If you are a small or new organization applying to GSoC, please list a larger, established GSoC organization or a Googler that can vouch for you here.
If you are a large organization who is vouching for a small organization applying to GSoC for their first time this year, please list their name and why you think they'd be good candidates for GSoC here.
