[Gluster-devel] Regarding involvement of Gluster in GSOC 2014

As you all might know, GSOC 2014 has been announced and currently, the organization application period is on. According to previous year's Fedora Project ideas page, some Glusterfs projects have been listed there for a couple of years, but either no one ever chooses them, or their proposals are never selected as there is no mention of any gluster projects under fedora on gsoc's previous year's site. 

So my question is that, is Gluster's stand as a prospective org under Fedora project strong, or is there a chance that Gluster will register as an independent organization on GSOC. Because, as an interested student, I think it's my duty to remind you about the approaching application deadline(which is just a couple of days away [1]).

As for the project, I'm already in constant contact with Krishnan Parthasarathi for the past few weeks and I'm getting valued feedback from the community regarding the proposed glusterfsiostat project.

Gluster is already a very rich community with many vibrant and experienced developers. Plus this year, Google's accepting about 10% more organizations than usual. So, I think that Gluster has a very good chance of being selected. An ideas page from 2010 and the most recent one is already present at [2] and [3]. Some official guidance can be obtained from [4]. Also, Fedora project wiki can always be referred for a first hand example. If I can be of any help in this regard, please do contact me. :-)
