Hi everyone!

It's that time of the year again. Google announced that mentoring organizations can now apply for summer of code in their blog:
https://opensource.googleblog.com/2021/01/google-summer-of-code-2021-is-open-for-applications.html
And in the mailing list:
https://groups.google.com/g/google-summer-of-code-discuss/c/KB8efMmLfhA

Application period ends on February 19. You can view the timeline here:
https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/how-it-works/#timeline

From the official website (https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com):
> Google Summer of Code is a global program focused on bringing more student developers into open source software development. Students work with an open source organization on a 10 week programming project during their break from school.

A good application requires a well prepared ideas list as outlined in the mailing list:
> Having a thorough and well thought out list of Project Ideas is the most important part of your application.

You can check out the mentor's guide on how to define a good ideas list:

If you have ideas on how to make D language and its ecosystem better or just want to browse current ones the project ideas page is on GitHub:
https://github.com/dlang/projects/issues

You may also want to check out ideas pages from the previous years:
