GSoC is a global program run by Google to encourage students to get real-world experience of participating in a software project; students work on a project over the summer months and receive a stipend from Google for participating. Thousands of organizations of many different sizes take part in GSoC, with the common factor being that they must produce open-source code.
Please take a look at the GSoC wiki page (http://gmod.org/wiki/GSoC) and think about any projects that might work well for a GSoC student, and add them to the wiki. If you are interested in being a mentor, please contact us at [hidden email] .
If you have any questions--e.g. what constitutes an appropriate project; whether your idea is sufficiently GMOD-related--please feel free to email [hidden email] for advice!
