1. Candidate Checklist

All candidates should do the following before completing their application:

2. Things we look for in a candidate

3. Mentors

Mentors are there to help students interface with the community. A good mentor will have experience with our patch review process per ContributingChanges, and know who to direct students to consult about particular topics. Mentors will be expected to take some time weekly to help their students, including sitting in on a weekly IRC meeting (to be scheduled once participants are selected). A mentor does not need to be an expert in their student's project area (in fact, this is discouraged).
