Re: Google Summer of Code-2012
I would like to volunteer too!
I agree with Ewan, we need fix time and dedicate mentors to students.
Can anyone telll me how this Google Summer of code works? I have gone
through there site, but I didn't get complete overview.
Like for example, we propose A project, then for this what kind of
development, testing, code submission process will work etc...?
