Greetings everyone,

Congratulations to the 9 students selected for GSoC 2019 with Sugar Labs. We
hope that you are as excited as we are. We had some great proposals to go
through and yours' really stood out.

Here are a few things to get you onboard,
1. Please subscribe to sugar-devel if you haven't already,
See http://lists.sugarlabs.org/listinfo/sugar-devel

2. Contact your project mentors to get started. Decide a weekly meeting time
which suits you and your mentors. Regular communication is an integral part
working on a project of this scale.
It can be tempting to communicate in private, but please use public forums
#sugar, #sugar-meeting, or @sugar-devel while communicating, so that other
community members can also join in.

3. You are required to write weekly blog posts about your GSoC progress. You
can start off by setting a blog up if you haven't already. Reply to this
thread with
the link to your blog.

4. We'll be having a weekly group meeting on #sugar-meeting, where all
mentors and students will discuss their progress. Since we have people from
Australia, France, India, Nigeria, and the US (pardon me if I've missed
it'll be difficult to find a time suitable for everyone. Reply to this
thread with your
preference of time. Here are a few suggested options,
* Monday 4:30 PM UTC / 10:00 PM IST
* Monday 6:30 PM UTC / 12:00 PM IST

5. If you have any issues with your mentor, or otherwise during the GSoC
project, please feel free to get in touch with the GSoC Org Admins. They are
James <quozl at laptop.org>, Rahul <rrbothra at gmail.com>, and Walter
<walter.bender at gmail.com>.

Welcome to Sugar Labs.
Looking forward to a productive summer with you guys

Rahul Bothra
