: It's critical that you find a project that you are excited about. You'll be spending most of the summer working on it (we expect you to treat the GSoC as a full-time job).  But don't just tell us how interested you are, show us.  You can do that by fixing a few bugs or interacting with us on IRC well before the deadline.  Our experience shows us that successful GSoC students demonstrate their interest early and often.
