Priority of GSoC Project Ideas

As it is the case a lot of times that due to the limited availability of slots in GSoC, not all project ideas are selected. I was actually interested in the idea Template plugin. So, I wanted to ask about what would be the criteria to shortlist projects if there were many proposals for different projects. If it would be according to the priority of the projects for the maintainers of Joplin, Can you please tell which projects are relatively more important (have higher priority).


That's a good question. We don't rank projects based on priority. We evaluate each student and their proposal individually.

Basically we're looking at your interactions with the community, the quality of your pull requests, and the quality of your final proposal. For the final proposal we're looking for you to demonstrate that you understand the project and the challenges you will face while working on the project.

Hope that helps!
