FW: [Open-bio-l] Let's get started with Google Summer of Code 2016

Fields, Christopher J
Kai Blin has graciously accepted heading up this year’s GSoC (with some help from Raoul Bonnal); see below for the original announcement.  Several ideas are present for BioPerl, including submission of project ideas for Perl 6.  This could run the gamut from writing up new code for BioPerl to creating useful library bindings for Perl 6.  

Also, we will need potential mentors for projects to help out.  This could be for Perl-related projects but also for other projects where you may have expertise.  Discussions will be happening on the OBF/GSoC list should anyone want to suggest project ideas or help mentor.

>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.
