Timeline

Contact info

Debian SoC coordinator: Baruch Even baruch@debian.org

Students who have any issue with their mentor or a mentor who has an issue with their student should contact the coordinator to help resolve it.

Infrastructure Provided to Students

Students are required to keep their development in the open, it is recommended that you use Alioth for your source control repository, you can use the [http://alioth.debian.org/projects/soc/ soc project] for your repository.

Most Debian development happens in the open already, so you will find a wealth of information on mailing lists and IRC, your mentor should be able to direct you to the proper resources.
