Thanks a lot for surfacing this. I participated in GSOC as a student a
couple times, and loved it. This being my first time around as a committer,
I'm excited to try and help.
I think, for starters, it may be good to find issues in JIRA to label with
"gsoc", so please everyone who knows of good candidate project issues,
label them with "gsoc".
And then we can find mentors for these issues, and start helping students
in the application process.

Would it make sense to have any GSOC students for next summer work on
Beam? Do we have some candidate things that would be suitable and
sufficiently discrete projects?
Initial applications for organizations not even open for about a month,
though thought worth getting a sense from the group.
A bit of info:
I am a junior majoring in CS and interested in Apache Beam and data process. I hope to >participate in GSOC and work on Beam next summer. Could you give me some advice on
how to prepare for it? Thanks a lot.
