    5 This wiki is for organizing our participation, keeping track of the projects, tasks, and publishing news. 
    6 Potential mentors and student applicants can (and should) suggest projects using the links below. 
    7 However, don't forget that, once you find something you are interested in, you will also need to 
    8 apply directly to Google.

    98 == Students: == 
    99 Want to earn $4500 for 3 months work hacking in Haskell?  Go 
    100 to our [http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/summer-of-code/query?status=new&status=assigned&status=reopened&group=topic&type=proposed-project&order=priority ideas page], browse around, and [wiki:StudApply write up a proposal] for something 
    101 you would like to work on.  You must be available to work basically 
    102 full-time for the months of June to August (inclusive).  Proposals are 
    103 competitive against other students.  Last year, nine were funded.  Your 
    104 deadline for application is 26th March. 
    105  
    106 == Anyone else: == 
    107 Got any good ideas for coding projects, but no time to work 
    108 on them yourself?  [http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/summer-of-code/newticket Add it into the database!]  Or do 
    109 you feel you could be either a primary or backup mentor for a student 
    110 project in an area of your interest, even if it isn't a project you 
    111 defined yourself?  We need willing members of the community to foster 
    112 the new student talent, so sign up on the [wiki:People] page if you 
    113 would like to be involved.  Obviously you will need Haskell coding 
    114 experience, but also be able to advise on time management, strategies 
    115 for gaining a userbase and keeping them happy, ways of interacting with 
    116 the wider Haskell community, and so on.

    130  
    131 Notes: 
    132  
    133 Tickets <= #86 were proposals from 2006.  Many of those ideas are still good. 
    134  
    135 Students can often find it difficult to pitch a proposal just right for the time available.  Mentors (or anybody else with experience) should add comments to proposals, like: off-topic, too easy, too hard, too vague. Please also give suggestions for improvement, helping to tighten-up and clarify what would be cool about the project. 
    136  
    137 We will probably try to have a backup mentor for every project in the final allocation, so feel free to put yourself down for a proposal, even if you might not be confident enough to be lead mentor.
