I did a strong tightening up of the formality of Scribus Team's GSoC process
last year in the proposal we submitted. Guess what - it didn't make a
difference. We didn't get selected because there were more good proposals then
money and it was out turn to fall through the cracks. We should definitely
try again. We have to make our proposal compelling enough to make it into the
initial selection pool and then hope for the best. Most of all we need good
ideas and eloquent presentation. Maybe you could get involved. All previous
years it had just been my writing, so maybe we need some change.
