Thanks a lot!.

Please could you explain a little more this part of the process:

Thanks again!


During this period, potential GSoC contributors are encouraged to discuss project ideas with the OpenMRS community. This is an opportunity for students to get feedback on the project ideas, learn about the needs of the OpenMRS project, and find potential mentors who can guide them through the application process.

The OpenMRS community is made up of experienced developers, healthcare professionals, and other stakeholders; who are committed to improving healthcare through the use of open-source software. By discussing project ideas with the community, potential contributors can tap into this expertise and gain a better understanding of the goals and priorities of the project.

To participate in these discussions, students can post their project ideas on the OpenMRS forum or engage with the community on other communication channels, such as the OpenMRS Slack workspace. They can also attend community meetings and events to learn more about the project and connect with potential mentors.

Overall, the goal of this phase is to help potential contributors develop strong project proposals that align with the needs of the OpenMRS project and have a high likelihood of being accepted into GSoC.
