    We're in.

  2. Tobias


  3. Kev

    Next up, finding willing students...

  4. Tobias

    is it that hard? :P

  5. Kev

    No idea.

  6. Tobias

    some of my fellow students also want to apply for GSoC this year

  7. Tobias

    at least I'm trying to push them to do so :)

  8. Kev

    Good :)

  9. bear

    kev - was just looking it up - congrats

  10. Kev

    Thanks for doing the application :)

  11. bear

    the hard part comes next

  12. bear


  13. bear goes to respond to notifications from gsoc

  14. Kev

    Yeah, we need a profile page done now.

  15. Kev

    I'm happy enough to do that if you want, I'm in free time now.

  16. bear

    please do - today we are release 4 varieties of firefox 4 RC1

  17. bear

    due to a security exploit discovered

  18. Kev

    Ok, let me look up my link id so you can give me permission to do so.

  19. bear

    I will draft a blog post now tho

  20. Kev

    Sent in a PM.

  21. bear

    i'm clicking the "please create your org now" link

  22. Kev


  23. bear

    what org email did we use last year? gsoc@xmpp.org or me or ??

  24. Kev

    For students to use? gsoc@ would be sensible.

  25. Kev


  26. bear

    it's for the org page

  27. Kev

    We can almost certainly change that later.

  28. bear

    ok gsoc@xmpp.org

  29. Kev

    Either gsoc@ or jdev@ then, yes.

  30. bear

    hmm, need to dig up xsf's mailing address

  31. bear

    ah - it's on the contact page of the blog

  32. bear

    putting my phone # until I can get one from peter

  33. bear

    ok, how many slots?

  34. Kev

    Right now I'd request 6.

  35. Kev

    We can, I believe, modify this later in light of how many excellent proposals we get.

  36. bear


  37. bear

    ok, inviting you as admin

  38. Kev

    Received, will sort that out now.

  39. bear


  40. bear

    stpeter auto-invited because he was listed as backup org admin

  41. Kev


  42. bear

    k, i'm turning back to dayjob - have some test devices that need work

  43. bear

    i'll be lurking, just not working on gsoc stuff (after I push out blog post that is)

  44. Kev

    Sure - and the blog post can easily wait a few hours :)

  45. bear

    this is just a "we are in!" mini post

  46. bear

    longer one to follow after application page is done

  47. bear

    ok, quick post done - back to work

  48. Kev

    Thanks bear.

  49. Tobias

    quite an enlargement this year...from 150 accepted orgs to 175

  50. bear

    wow - that's a lot of orgs

  51. Kev


  52. Kev

    416 applied.

  53. Kev

    I've just done a second pass of the org profile. Looks like Bear had already pretty much done it :)

  54. Kev

    http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/org/show/google/gsoc2011/xsf should be public-facing, I think.

  55. bear checks on work laptop

  56. bear

    they rewrote the url as a redirect back to the 2011 home page

  57. bear

    oh - I must have typo'd it

  58. bear

    I see it now
