                     24: vary a lot in required skills and difficulty. We hope to get applications
                     25: with a broad spectrum.
                     26:

                     34: Summer-of-Code, but may serve as ideas for your own suggestions. You might

                    107: 
                    108: We are trying to be fair; expect easy projects to require less knowledge and skill, but quite a bit of work.
                    109: 
                    110: Medium and hard projects are hard enough to qualify as practical part of a master's thesis (it'll qualify as thesis topic if you can add sufficient quality theoretical parts). We had the honor to mentor several in past GSoCs. Talk to your adviser(s) if and how you can claim academic credit for the project you do with us.
                    111: 
                    112: We have not yet failed a student who worked hard and actually talked (and listened) to their mentors and the community. If unexpected roadblocks make your project goals too hard to reach in the time given, the goals can be re-negotiated. They will not be for rampant slacking, though.
                    113: 
                    114: What we expect from contributors (both GSoC students and generally) is that they cooperate, that they are able to communicate (this will mean some English skills, sorry), and that they meet a minimum of good manners towards other people on our lists and other venues. Note that being a specific color, gender, nationality, religion, etc is not listed: If you are willing and able to contribute in a constructive manner, you are welcome.
