Might be a good fit for KolibriOS? ... ts-wanted/

The VALS Semester of Code is an upcoming project that will work with universities and FOSS communities to give students real-world experience working in software projects. Unlike Google Summer of Code, Semester of Code students will be participating for academic credit as part of their degree courses, and we hope that after completion of their project will go on to be effective contributors to the FOSS community.

The VALS initiative is a partership of European universities and SMEs who have been working for several months to plan the pilot of Semester of Code, which will run during the next academic year. We have now reached the stage where we are signing up FOSS projects who are willing to provide mentored projects of students. We have already seen interest from smaller, single-company projects to larger software foundations, and would like to see more.

If you are part of a FOSS project, large or small, that would be willing to provide one or more mentored projects, we’d love to talk to you about joining Semester of Code. In return, you’ll get an enthusiastic student providing a valuable contribution to your project. The VALS team will be on hand throughout the project to answer any questions and help unblock communication issues between mentors, students and academic supervisors.

I'm starting this thread to suggest the idea of the KolibriOS project applying for the VALS Semester of Code.
From this page: []
The Semester of Code (SoC) is an initiative of the European VALS project, which allows students of degrees of computer science addressing real business problems raised by companies and OSS Foundations, and get rewards from resolving them reflecting it in their formal education.

I think it would be good to have more people involved with the project.

Great minds think alike ;)
Some GSoC orgs are finding their mentors are overworked and they will not join VALS SoC. I have contacted several orgs separately and KDE mentioned this burdened-with-work blocker issue.

Of the ones I pinged, for example, Haiku and Inkscape are considering joining: ... er-of-Code ... 70793.html

The deadline for joining is end of June.

Thank you very much for your suggestion, Beluga & louisdem.
Actually they have postponed the registration deadline for organizations, and it now ends tomorrow September 11th 24:00 UTC.

We have submitted our application. We decided to offer as projects the ideas that were offered for GSoC 2014, but were not taken by the students.
