GSoC 2022: Call for (co-)mentors

Continuing the discussion from GNU Octave is a mentoring organization for GSoC 2022:

Octave has received great proposals this year. Many thanks to all students for your effort and interest :slightly_smiling_face: :tada:

Octave cannot benefit from this interest alone yet. The current group of mentors probably has to reject some great proposals without your help until the review deadline 2022-05-12T18:00:00Z.

We need your help now!

If anyone is interested in helping us reviewing the proposals or (co-)mentoring a project, please reach out to @Nir, @cdf, or @siko1056 until 2022-05-06T00:00:00Z.

Note: reviewing the proposals does not come with any obligations, but helps us ranking which students to choose this summer and you can see if you are interested in any of those projects.

Being a co-mentor is also not a 24/7 obligation. You can answer questions (if any) by the students at any convenient time, decide about how much time to devote shaping the project (just serve as backup or actively participate in discussions), and you mostly serve as โ€œa person I can contact in case my main mentor is not reachableโ€.

Thank you :slightly_smiling_face:

P.S.: All current GSoC mentors: please mark if you are interested in mentoring a project in the official program website.
