Google Summer of Code needs you… to mentor student projects!

We’re a mentoring organization for the Google Summer of Code again this year, and we’re dead set on making it our awesomest summer ever!
One key thing though is making sure that students and potential students have access to a mentor who can answer their questions and just help steer them into becoming an active member of our development community.
If you’re an experienced MediaWiki developer and would like to help out with selecting and mentoring student projects, please give us a shout! We’ll take you even if you live in the southern hemisphere. 😉
We need folks who’ll be available online fairly regularly over the summer and are knowledgeable about MediaWiki — not necessarily knowing every piece of it, but knowing where to look so you can help the students help themselves.
If you’re interested, don’t forget to apply soon! Student submissions will complete next week and we’ll need to start selecting then… (See Google’s FAQ on what mentorship organizations do and program eligibility.)

“We’ll take you even if you live in the southern hemisphere. ;)”
For the southern hemispherians, instead of “Summer of Code” would that be the “Winter of our Disk Content”?

“but knowing where to look so you can help the students can help themselves.”
I think there’s a “can” too many.. ?

Can overload has been fixed. 🙂
