Gentoo accepted to GSoC 2016 (Feb 29, 2016)

Students are encouraged to start working now on their project proposals. You can peruse the list of ideas or come up with your own. In any case, it is highly recommended you talk to a mentor sooner rather than later. The official application period for student proposals starts on March 14th.

Do not hesitate to join us in the #gentoo-soc channel on freenode. We will be happy to answer your questions there.
More information on Gentoo’s GSoC effort is also available on our Wiki.
