Python Sub-org Ideas Template

There are not very many strict requirements for Google Summer of Code Ideas pages, but there are some things that students often ask us for. This page is intended as a starting template for organizations so you don't forget those things.

Warning: In 2014, many orgs got rejected because their ideas pages were offline when Google checked. Make sure your ideas page is hosted somewhere that Google's Open Source Programs Office will be able to access when they check!

About MyOrg

Tell the students a bit about your organization. Here's some questions you might want to answer:

Contacting MyOrg

Include any special instructions/info about communicating: e.g. what time zones are your mentors in? do you prefer it if gsoc students introduce themselves first or just dive in? are there any common mistakes students make when making a first impression?

Getting Started

Links to setup instructions go here. Some suggested things to answer:

Writing your GSoC application

Links to advice about applications and the application template goes here.

Project Ideas

You should usually have a couple of project ideas, ranging in difficulty from beginner to expert. Please do try to have at least one, preferably several beginner tasks: GSoC gets a lot of students with minimal open source experience who feel very discouraged (and sometimes even complain to google) if orgs don't any have projects at their level.

1. Project name

2. Project name

As above. etc. Unless there's a compelling reason to sort in some other order, ideas should be ordered approximately from easiest to hardest.
