    2525While we are already collaborating globally with other institutions and while Orange is open source from the very beginning we have never really managed to build a real open source community around the project. This year we have decided that we should work more actively towards this and we see GSoC as a great motivation and initiative to open our development and start building global community of independent contributors around Orange. It is also an opportunity for us to gain experience how to organize necessary environment for community participation and also reach to possible interested participants. And of course, to slowly show ourselves on the map of open source projects and communities.

     41We have participated for the first time in 2011, got allocated 2 slots, asked for increase to 3 because we really had very good applications and got 3 -- which proved great because all students were really good and active and successfully contributed to the project.
