Re: [MirageOS-devel] [Xen-devel] GSoC 2015 - Not accepted ... but some mentoring organisations which have several Xen related projects in them are

I reached out to the GSoC people to get information on why we were not accepted.  The response is not surprising:

"We had to make a lot of hard decisions with our GSoC organizations this year, and unfortunately yours was one of them. We focused a lot on trying to make space and accept new, small organizations who have never participated before, and we felt it wouldn't be an extreme hardship for your organization to take a year off from the program. I hope you all will apply again in a future year, and good luck with everything this year!"

Hi folks,

just a quick note to let you know that we were not accepted for GSoC this year. Do note that the Linux Foundation, OpenStack Foundation and many of the other usual suspects have not been accepted this year. We will find out more why on Friday. However, there are at least 4 Xen related projects that are managed by other
I made a note at the top of http://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/Archived/GSoC_2015 to point applicants to some of those projects. I have found 5 so far (which may bot be a complete list):
Other projects which were accepted are QEMU: note that there are no Xen related projects, but given that Xen has good relationships with the QEMU community we may be able to get one or two projects onto the list if someone steps up and is willing to mentor

Best Regards
