I'm happy to volunteer as a mentor this year. Is there a way to register
that for OBF's initial application?

For those who missed it, the front page for OBF GSoC 2016 is apparently not
on biopython.org but on GitHub:

And the ideas page is here:

New ideas can be submitted via pull request:

> 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
> rolling.
> 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
