Google Summer of Code 2019
The XMPP Standards Foundation (XSF) is going to apply as mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code 2019.
The XSF is an umbrella organisation for various XMPP-releated projects. As such, there's two tiers involved - the XSF itself, which is responsible for catherding mentors to submit ideas, choosing students etc., and the software projects themselves that then mentor students. Anyone interested in participating in GSoC as an XSF student can join the firstname.lastname@example.org chat room, where various mentors will be available to answer questions and generally help. Although each idea in the lists of project ideas mentions a possible mentor, this MUC is the best place to start.
As there are several disparate projects here, there's variety across several codebases in different languages and with significantly different aims, so take a look through all the ideas - there should be something for everyone here :)
