+## Applying for a Task
We always ask students that want to apply for a task (in the course of the
Google Summer of Code) to mind our distinct [[student_application_form]].
-Apart from our own [[project_ideas]], there are also two [Hurd-related ideas
-for X.Org](
+We have a list of [[project_ideas]], and students are likewise encouraged to
+submit their own project proposals.
+The Google Summer of Code 2011 has not yet started; we will later announce the
+beginning of the students' application phase. However, working on one of these
+projects is still a good opportunity to get started with Hurd development, even
+outside of the GSoC context.
-As the Google Summer of Code 2010 has already started, you can no longer
-participate as a GSoC student. However,
-working on one of these projects is still a good opportunity to get started with Hurd development.
Please read up about [[contributing]] in general;
and feel free to ask any questions you might have at one of our [[regular_IRC_meetings|IRC#regular_meetings]].
Generally it's a good idea to [[contact_us|communication]] when starting to work on some project.
