Google Summer of Code 2020

Disclaimer: It is not yet finally decided whether or not the XMPP Standards Foundation will participate in this years GSoC.

The XSF is an umbrella organisation for various XMPP-related projects. As such, there's two tiers involved - the XSF itself, which is responsible for cat-herding 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 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 :)
