GSoC IRC Chats

The application period opens today and closes on March 21. Between now and then, we’ll set up a handful of IRC chats starting this Wednesday (We’ll use #wordpress-gsoc so as not to distract from the beta work in -dev, and won’t get too close to the dev chat time-wise) to allow some real-time chatting with potential students about their project ideas.

All mentors should sign up for at least one time slot so the students will know which chat time will have appropriate mentors in the room. Everyone is welcome to attend these chats, not just mentors.

I’d like to pick 2 times of day and do the chats on Thursday the 13th, Saturday the 15th, Tuesday the 18th, and Thursday the 20th. 21:00 UTC seems to work well for dev chat, so I’m thinking that could be one of the times, but would like a 2nd time that we could do at least once or twice to make it easier on anyone on Australia/Russia side of the world.

Mentors: Please leave a comment with which days/times you can be available for chats in IRC. If anyone has an idea for a good 2nd chat time, suggestions welcome.

Thanks!
