Hi all,

SOCIS - Summer Of Code In Space, is an ESA program which aims at
offering student developers stipends to write code for various
space-related open source software project.

For more information, see:

FFmpeg participated in the past two editions, and hopefully we are
going to apply this year as well.

Organization application deadline is on 20 June, on the next Thursday,
so we have less than a week to present the application.

You can find a detailed timeline here:

SOCIS usually allocates a single slot for each organization. I'm going
to volunteer as administrator and co-mentor, but I won't as
mentor. The coding period is from the beginning of August to the end
of October, mentor's average involvement requires around 5 hours per
week, but this may greatly vary depending on the student/project.

Please reply to this mail as soon as possible if you're willing to act
as mentor, I won't send the application if there are no volunteers.
