The deadline has finished, we have several very good proposals for FreeCAD! I am not sure I'm permitted to give any detail here (probably not), so you'll all have to wait until May 6 to know!
Thanks to all of you who submitted a proposal and came here to discuss the matter with us. This last point is of big importance in GSOC.
To all mentors, now you can (and should!) access the platform at https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com
, and start reviewing all the proposals marked with the "freecad" tag (you can read the others too!). Write your opinion below if you can and wish, and if you feel you would like to mentor a project, just press the "i want to mentor" button. There can be many mentors per project, so no problems in marking many. Also, we can discuss privately if you wish to mentor but would like to do it together with someone else, etc
Remember no information about the process can be given to students prior to the official Google announcement on May 6th. Patience, students!
