I'm a little behind the times, but .. great news!  We're a GSoC
organization this year!

We've had two students per year since we began with GSoC, and it'd be
nice to expand a little -- three, maybe four?  But to do that, we need
more mentors.

I know all about impostor syndrome, and you've got it right now "Oh
sure, I've been using Buildbot for a while, but I really don't know a
thing about it" or "sure I've submitted a patch here and there but I
don't really understand Buildbot" (heck, *I* say the latter to myself
all the time, and I've submitted more than a patch or two!).  It's all
lies!  If you are a Buildbot user with enough hacking skill to submit
a patch to Buildbot, then you have exactly the skills our students
need help with: navigating a big codebase with a goal in mind, without
getting overwhelmed.

You know where to find me when you're ready to volunteer ;)
