Re: About the slot in Google Summer of Code
For your application, it's recommended to contact a mentor -- to get to
know them, to make sure you understand the project, etc -- before you
submit a GSoC proposal.
After all the student proposals are in, we will request a number of
internship slots from Google -- their response determines the number of
interns Debian can accept. Only then will those slots be allocated to
I hope this clarifies things.
