'''Please note that the following informations are preliminary as MacPorts was not yet accepted for Google Summer Of Code 2009, but we are looking forward to applying.'''
-== Applying for SoC ==
+== Applications for SoC ==
+=== General Info ===
Applications must be done online, on the [http://code.google.com/opensource/gsoc/2009/ Google SoC website]. You will find more information on their page on [http://groups.google.com/group/google-summer-of-code-announce/web/guide-to-the-gsoc-web-app-for-student-applicants "Student Applications"]. Student applications must be submitted by '''April 3, 19:00 UTC'''. The official [http://code.google.com/opensource/gsoc/2009/faqs.html#0_1_timeline_5354032302481437_ timeline] should be consulted for the other dates.
There are several things to consider. We are willing to support and mentor students who want to gain an experience by working on The MacPorts Project. We have many ideas for potential internship subjects, yet we are open to anything that is both interesting and relevant to MacPorts. Motivated students do not necessarily need to know Tcl language beforehand, especially if they already know several script languages such as Python, Ruby, PHP or Perl.
+=== For the MacPorts project ===
The best way to apply is to first make contact with us, either by sending a mail to the MacPorts developer [http://lists.macosforge.org/mailman/listinfo/macports-dev "mailing list"], to the potential mentors listed below, or to IRC members on #macports on [http://freenode.net/ FreeNode].
+What we expect from students for their applications:
+ * Write your own abstract and proposal, copying text from this idea page is not enough
+ * Get familiar with the MacPorts project resources. Especially [GetMacPortsSource check out the code] and [http://guide.macports.org read the guide].
+ * Read the [http://www.tcl.tk/man/tcl8.5/tutorial/tcltutorial.html Tcl Tutorial]
+ * Get in contact! Discuss your contribution ideas with potential mentors by e-mail, on the MacPorts development list or the irc channel '''before applying'''.
