Yesterday I've sent a private e-mail to Matthew Burke (our last year organization admin), but haven't received any answer yet.

I'm willing to devote the same amount of time and energy to this year GSoC as last year.

To be successful this year I think we have to:

1. rewrite our application to show we've learnt something from last year

2. ask who can mentor a student this year and encourage people to
write down their ideas (preferably assigning mentors to ideas)

3. ask our community to promote Tcl amoung students at the universities worldwide so we will receive *some* student applications which is deciding factor how many slots we will finally have.

This year I can reach 3 CS universities in Poland as I'm involved in organizing on March 11th and 12th a lecture by D. Richard Hipp (SQLite author, Tcl Core Team emeritus member) and he promised to advertise a Tcl GSoC 2009 during those lectures.

That is an interesting flyer.

Wonder if we should do a similar one ?
