delegation for the summer of code admins, 2013 ed.

Dear project members, Google Summer of Code program (GSoC) has now been announced for its 9th edition [1,2]. Debian is going to apply for participation like we did in the past. I’m happy to inform you that we have again volunteers as (co-)admins for Debian participation: David Bremner, Nicolas Dandrimont, Paul Tagliamonte, and Sukhbir Singh.

Many thanks to all of them!


GSoC admins coordinate Debian participation, interact with the students
(often Debian newbies), and indirectly deal with the money who are used
to sponsor the initiative. It is a role of responsibility and involves
representing Debian in various ways. I’m therefore pleased to properly
delegate the role to this year GSoC admins. Formal delegation text can
be found below [3].

You will hear very soon from the admins about how to help with Debian
participation in the program. In the meantime it won’t hurt if you could
start thinking about your Debian project proposals for GSoC 2013.


[3]: Nicolas and Sukhbir are not part of the delegation only because
they are not yet Debian project members, but they will be helping
with the tasks described below nonetheless


GSoC 2013 Delegation

I hereby appoint the following project members as admins for Debian
participation into Google Summer of Code Program 2013 (GSoC admins):

– David Bremner
– Paul Tagliamonte

The delegation is time limited: it will be effective until the end of
the program (currently scheduled for October 20, 2013) or the end of
2013, whichever occurs first.

Task Description

GSoC admins coordinate the participation of Debian in the Google Summer
of Code program, edition 2013. GSoC admins are responsible for tasks
that include:

– keep the Debian community informed about the status of Debian
participation into the GSoC program

– act as a contact point before Google for all topics that concern
Debian participation into the GSoC program

– establish rules about who can apply for the various roles envisaged by
the GSoC program

– rank student applications, by taking into account the feedback given
by mentors and other reviewers
