Google is now accepting Summer of Code proposals, through April 9, 2010 at 19:00 UTC.We're very excited about having students working with Mono again this year!
If you're a student looking for ideas, take a look at the Project Ideas list (though you're welcome to come up with ideas of your own). It's a good idea to discuss your ideas with us on the mailing lists or IRC before making your proposal, so that we can get to know you and help you flesh out the proposal. Making some initial patches or other contributions to the areas of Mono that you're interested in helps us to gauge your skill and interest, though it's not required. Please also read the application template before applying.
If you're a mentor, please apply on the GSoC site ASAP so that you can start to comment on students' proposals as they come in, to help the students refine their proposals.
Everyone who's interested in Summer of Code, please join the community on Mono IRC, including the Mono SoC channel, #monosoc, and the Mono mailing lists. And please spread the word to anyone you know who might be interested!
If you have ideas for the ideas page, or any other comments, please email Michael Hutchinson.
