Hello infra people!

I am Martin, one of the Jenkins GSoC Org Admins for 2019.

We are preparing for the 15th edition of the famous Google Summer of Code
program. Jenkins successfully participated in 2016 and 2018.

GSoC is as program where students are paid a stipend by Google to work on a
free open source project like Jenkins, at full-time for four months (May to
August). Mentors get actively involved with students at the end of February
when students start to apply (timeline
<https://developers.google.com/open-source/gsoc/timeline>).

Before we can accept students, we need Google to accept Jenkins'
application to the program itself. And for this to happen, we need coding
project proposals and mentors.

We currently have three infrastructure related proposals, and are looking
for more project proposals, and for mentors and technical advisers (and
subject matter experts). The current proposals are:

1) Version and Document the REST API
<https://docs.google.com/document/d/1CYzV_w5SrA-npXEMwTkJ4E2QyJdd2cJm7eDpwhg4XPk/edit?usp=sharing>
2) Pipeline Step Documentation improvements

3) Infrastructure Improvements: Newbie Friendly Jiras (no doc yet)

Making a project idea proposal is easy, just read these short instructions
<https://jenkins.io/projects/gsoc/proposing-project-ideas/>.

It takes about 5 to 8 hours of work per week (more at the start, less at
the end) to mentor a student. In return, one of your projects may get
completed. Think about those projects that you've always wanted to do but
could not find the time... GSoC is pretty good return on the investment.

You can find the GSoC admins, mentors and participants on gitter:
https://gitter.im/jenkinsci/gsoc-sig

I would appreciate if you could invite me to one of your weekly or monthly
meetings. I could answer any questions you have live.

Best Regards,
Martin d'Anjou
