Hey all,

As we've previously announced through different channels, Haskell.org
was accepted into Google Summer of Code 2018 [1].

Students application have now opened.  Students can submit their
proposal at the Summer of Code Dashboard [2].

We are also seeking mentors for possible projects.  This year, we would
like to assign a back-up mentor for each student.  If you are interested
in mentoring, please contact us [3] so we can add you to the mentor list
directly.  Having good mentors is an important factor in making the
students feel welcome and guiding them to a succesful completion of
their projects.

If you would like to apply but you don't know how to start your
proposal, have a look at our ideas list [4] and this great guide [5].

Lastly, we recognize that inclusion is an important part of our mission
to promote Haskell. Therefore, we strongly encourage applications from
people in communities that are underrepresented in functional
programming, including but not limited to women; people of color; people
in gender, sexual and romantic minorities; people with disabilities;
people residing in Asia, Africa, or Latin America; and people who have
never taken part in similar programs before.

Kind regards, Jasper Van der Jeugt & George Wilson on behalf of the
Haskell.org Committee
