coreboot accepted for GSoC 2022

Hello coreboot community,

We have great news: The coreboot project has been accepted for this year’s Google Summer of Code! Thanks to everyone who made this possible!

You can find our GSoC organization page here [1] (unfortunately, newlines were removed from the description, but that’s true for all of the accepted orgs).

Looking at the GSoC timeline [2], this means the next step is discussing our exciting projects. We have about a month for this, from now until April 3rd, when the application phase starts.

We’re still looking for mentors! If you are interested, please have a look at the mail that Felix Singer, GSoC 2022 admin, sent earlier [3]. You also can help with code reviews or working out a project (writing description, defining project scope and tasks, …). Every bit of help counts.

For people interested in being GSoC candidates, we have set up a page [4] with all kinds of information and documentation. Please have a look at this, it’s really worth reading it 🙂

We have also prepared a list of projects [5] and started brainstorming more project ideas [6]. No matter whether you want to participate as a GSoC contributor or mentor, if you are interested, please let us know. Also, in case you have your own project idea, feel free to reach out.

We are excited to have great discussions with you!

Your Org Admins,

Felix Singer, Martin Roth, David Hendricks


P.S. The Flashrom project, which has been included as a part of coreboot in past GSoC programs has also been accepted as a separate GSoC 2022 participating organization. Congratulations!
