this year I plan to do a break from GSOC mentoring .. time to tidy up
leftovers of the last two GSoC years and get some private projects done.
However I would be willing to be a Xfce org admin again, doing all the
I as well would be fine with being a backup mentor, if some other mentor
should be sick or something.
My plan would be to register Xfce for GSoC 2023 on end of January  ..
though of course that only makes sense if we have people which want to
mentor for Xfce.
For GSoC 2022 the project-time-frame and project-size was very flexible.
I suppose mentoring took me an average of ~2hours a week from May till
While some mentors do regular video calls with the contributors, I
preferred to just chat with them via IRC and on gitlab issues/MR's or
via email, which as well worked fine.
Generally I can say that GSoC mentoring is a nice way for getting things
done, and to lure people into Xfce-development :) Though it for sure
will eat some of your time.
If you are interested, you will need to define some possible projects
from which GSoC applicants can pick from. See  as an example.
Xfce mentors will receive $500 per participant as "mentor stipend".
So if you are interested in mentoring for Xfce, please let me know !
