On behalf of the Jenkins GSoC org admin team and mentors, we would like to welcome Harsh Pratap Singh, Jagruti Tiwari, Vandit Singh, and Ashutosh Saxena. They will be working on Google Summer of Code projects in the Jenkins organization, and they have already done some contributions.
This year we have the following projects:

As part of the "GSoC Community Bonding Period" over the next few weeks, project teams will be reaching out to potential stakeholders. The purpose is to establish connections with the community to get comments regarding their project designs. If you are interested in the projects, please join discussions in the GSoC SIG and project Gitter channels, the Developer mailing lists, and project meetings once they get scheduled. Also, expect more detailed blogposts about the projects soon.
