Its Google Summer of Code (GSoC) time again :)

A special welcome to Biopython contributor Kai Blin who has
kindly volunteered to serve as the OBF GSoC administrator.

As in previous years, we (Biopython) will need potential mentors
or co-mentors (it is time demanding, but can be enormously
rewarding), and some potential project ideas to include with
the OBF GSoC application.

It would be great to start updating the wiki page,

Note Google dropped support for the relevant OpenID API,
but Yahoo OpenID seems to be working again. As an aside,
if anyone knows a lot about MediaWiki installations and
OpenID, please drop us an email on root-l at ... to see if you
can help.

Dear Open Bioinformatics community,

Google is now accepting applications for mentoring organizations for
the 2016 installment of the Google Summer of Code. You can find out a
bit about the Google Summer of Code from an OBF perspective on our
wiki at http://www.open-bio.org/wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code. My
apologies for the 2015 material still on there, but I've been fighting
with the OpenID account creation on our wiki, and have not won so far.
Still, most of the material still applies for this year.

In order to actually collect a number of interesting project ideas
that we could have students work on, we need your help as a community.
Please join us on the OBF/GSoC mailing list
(http://lists.open-bio.org/mailman/listinfo/gsoc) so we can get

I would love to get a good list of proposals together until Wednesday,
February 17th. To get a feeling what some nice project ideas would
look like, have a look at our ideas list for 2015
(http://www.open-bio.org/wiki/Google_Summer_of_Code_2015_Ideas). As in
the last years, project ideas from all the OBF member projects are
welcome. Additionally, we would like to invite other bioinformatics
projects that are connected to the OBF to join us in our GSoC
application. Connected projects would include projects that are heavy
users of the Bio* libraries or similar. It would be ideal if all
project ideas could be backed by two mentors.

Feel free to forward this message to your respective OBF member
projects, or connected bioinformatics community.

Kind regards from the OBF GSoC team,

Kai Blin,
OBF administrator for GSoC 2016
