We could always apply as an umbrella org but we haven't done so since it
would create an administrative overhead for project leaders. I agree that
there are advantages but I don't think we are that big of an organization.

By the way we are already working with Claudia on the application.

> <http://brlcad.org/>*. The project does not need to be a legally

> <http://www.opensource.org/licenses> and have at least two contributors
> to serve as organization administrators and/or mentors for the entire

> As an individual project, you as project leader can do so.

> Your goal for GSoC is to generate a list of project ideas that capture the
> development needs of your organization, attract the interest of students,
> and help you get things done. This is often done as a community effort that
> involves as many potential mentors as possible, helps create buy-in from
> these mentors, and gives a broad range of perspectives on organizational
> needs.* Creating your list of project ideas should also be part of an
> ongoing long-term strategy, rather than a rushed act to meet the
> application deadline. Many organizations maintain such project lists
> year-round*.
