This is extremely helpful, thank you for updating these and also for spelling it out so clearly here @suthagar23! :slight_smile:

I was reviewing the project descriptions and the templates we’re using for the 2021 GSoC projects and had an idea. What do you think of the idea of including something like having a section in the intro table under “Assigned to” that specifies “Sites this Helps” or “Implementer Contacts”, and “Connected to Squad”?

For example, in the MF UI project proposal below, we could add to the table at the top: “Sites this helps: iSantePlus Haiti”; “Connected to Squad: FHIR Squad”

Not all ideas will be able to fill this in, which is okay for now, but it will make it much clearer which projects have an explicit connection to an implementation or squad need.

This could help students identify or understand which projects are community priorities, why, and which ones will give them an opportunity to work as part of a collaborative team.

@suthagar23 @herbert24 @mozzy what do you think?

Great @grace , Further I prefer to attach the status and development period as well.

Connected to Squad : FHIR Squad
Project Mentors : Name of the mentor(s)
Assigned to : Name of the selected student
Status : Grooming | Open to developers | Selection completed | On progress |Completed | Backlog
Development Period : 01 Jan 2021 - 01 Apr 2021

Further, the mentors will be directly/indirectly connected with the implementers and prioritize requirements to be implemented with GSoC. So in this case, do we need to attach the “Sites this Helps” or “Implementer Contacts” as this page will be used to give an idea to the student about the project goal. Correct my if I’m wrong :grinning:
