The Perl Foundation are (hopefully) participating as a mentor organization in GSoC 2014 and Shadowcat Systems CEO Mark Keating is one of the people hoping to make that happen.
Student applications may be submitted starting in March but the organisations need to register in February and gather students for the challenge. The organisers are hoping to get people involved now on both the mailing lists for students and mentors. They are also needing prospective ideas on the wiki for potential projects.
The current list of admins for the project is:
- TPF Admin: Jonathan Leto (jonathan at leto dot net)
- TPF Admin: Mark Keating (m dot keating at shadowcat dot co dot uk)
The group also have a dedicated irc channel at: #soc-help on irc.perl.org.
