We're working on the execution of summer coding initiatives within Fedora. Effectively, what we're trying to do is take the [http://socghop.appspot.com/ Google Summer of Code (GSoC)] model and generalize and expand it to the notion of $FUNDING_SOURCE Summer of Code by providing sample implementations of alternative values of $FUNDING_SOURCE alongside our continued participation in GSoC.

=== Sponsoring organizations ===
+
== Communication ==
  
These organizations are sponsoring student summer coding work in 2010 and are working with the Fedora Project.
+
=== Mailing List ===
  
For example, Fedora sub-projects and mentors can submit ideas to a pool that students consider for their summer work.
+
* The project mailing list is the main discussion location for all students and mentors: http://lists.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/summer-coding
 +
* The mentors use one or either of these lists:
 +
** http://lists.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/summer-coding-mentors
 +
** https://groups.google.com/group/redhat-summer-mentors
  
A sponsoring organization may be providing a stipend to one or more students to work on projects for Fedora or JBoss.org.
+
=== IRC ===
  
We are including internships here, which are part or full-time student jobs to work directly with a sponsoring organization team.

Purpose: Oversee, define, and improve on the Fedora Project's work with students contributing as part of their classwork or summer internship, and do so in a way that provides a general framework re-deployable by other open source projects seeking to do the same.
