Dear all,
Dimitris Kontokostas has started to draft a document for submission at 
Google Summer of Code:

We are still in need of ideas and mentors.  If you have any improvements 
on DBpedia or DBpedia Spotlight that you would like to have done, please 
submit it in the ideas section now. Note that accepted GSoC students 
will receive about 5000 USD, which can help you to estimate the effort 
and size of proposed ideas. It is also ok to extend/amend existing ideas 
(as long as you don't hi-jack them). Please edit here:

accepts our project. Note that it is also ok, if you are a researcher 
and have a suitable student to submit an idea and become mentor. After 
acceptance by Google the student then has to apply for the idea and get 

Please take some time this week to add your ideas and apply as a mentor, 
if applicable. Feel free to improve the introduction as well and comment 
on the rest of the document.

Thank you for your help,
Sebastian and Dimitris
