Thanks @suthagar23 for this Announcent, i would like to volunteer ,to take on the role of GSOC 2020 admin , as i requested here



Thanks @suthagar23 for GSOC2020 Updates. i would also like to participate as GSOC mentor year 2020

@suthagar23 Thanks for always keeping the community updated and leading us beautifully. @mozzy by the look of things @suthagar23 has already volunteered to be an admin and so you can be the co-admin as he mentors you.


@jwnasambu you have just spoken what was exactly in my mind! :slight_smile:


I want to think otherwise. He could have just posted the announcement but not necessarily that he is the Admin. Is there a default Admin? :slight_smile:

@dkayiwa I would like to do also :smile:. Since a lot of people would like to work as Co-Admins, we can evaluate and find the potential candidate for that role :slight_smile:.

@irenyak1 Nothing is default :smile:, It depends on our commitment and work.

@suthagar23 that’s much clear now that you want to be admin :slight_smile: before this post, I would not just assume. Confirmatory test now done :smiley:

@irenyak1 we do not have a default admin. But one can be an admin for more than once. :smile:

Being an admin takes a lot of effort and therefore requires serious commitment. This commitment is seen in past experiences of a person, and other things like being able to monitor a program and make the community aware of it, when Google announces.


Ok thanks @dkayiwa for the clarification, I thought @suthagar23 was our always admin :smiley: @suthagar23 thank you for the clarification too. :slight_smile: Yeah very hard work is required I know.

These are the various ways of contributing: Coding , documentation, testing, outreach and Analysis. What are you interested in?

Its a great oppotunity too :slightly_smiling_face: I would still take on being Co-Admin too

This is exciting! I would like to participate for GSoC-2020 as a student. I need guidelines on how to increase my chances of being selected as early as now before student application begins.
