It will be made clear that community involvement prior to selection will be strong factor for being considered for a proposal. We believe that open source contribution is not a summer time affair. Students should be talking with mentors from the start in order to develop the adequate understanding and  material required to tackle the proposal. This may include but is not limited to showing familiarity with an API, submitting patches, and reading papers and discussing them with mentors. We believe that a well considered proposal/mentor/student combination reinforces student engagement during the GSoC period. Most of the proposal are significant enough that students should feel a sense of ownership about their accomplishment. At the same time the proposals are significant enough to the Clojure community that community members can provide support once the intensive GSoC period is done and the student must focus more time on academic responsibilities.
