organisation.  (Although, as always, there is no guarantee of

If you have ideas for student projects that you think would benefit the
Haskell community, now is the time to start discussing them on mailing
lists of your choice.  We especially encourage students to communicate

much worse chance of acceptance than if you develop ideas in
collaboration with those who will be your "customers", end-users, or
fellow-developers.  This is the open-source world!

The timeline is that Haskell.org will apply for GSoC membership between
9-13 March, and if we are successful, students can submit applications
between 23 March - 3 April.

If you wish to help publicise GSoC amongst students, there are official
posters/fliers available (not specific to haskell.org):
