    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.

    27 On the other hand, we have much experience with working with students as we are also an educational institution at university level so we believe we can give much to possible students, ranging from knowledge and experience in data mining and machine learning to programing, algorithms, software development in general. We also hope that maybe we can find some students which would be interested in this fields also after the GSoC, possibly also into research.

    29 And of course, we have some smaller but still interesting ideas what would Orange benefit from but we have not yet managed to get to it, so it could be directly useful to do it in this way. What will make Orange even more powerful and easier to use at the same time. And we also hope to integrate some social dimensions into Orange itself, inviting users to share and participate in knowledge exchange and in this way improve collaboration in general in the field of data mining and machine learning.

    37 We did participate in GSoC in 2006 under Python Software Foundation but our project sadly did not get any student at the end. This year we have decided to try again as Google have expressed interest in new projects.

    3939'''If your organization participated in past GSoCs, please let us know the ratio of students passing to students allocated, e.g. 2006: 3/6 for 3 out of 6 students passed in 2006.''' 
     
    8888'''What criteria did you use to select the individuals who will act as mentors for your organization? Please be as specific as possible.'''

    90 For mentors we have envisioned professors and teaching and research assistants who are already working at our laboratory on Orange itself and who have much experience with guiding students through their work and also teaching them diverse knowledge along the way. In this way we will have experienced mentors knowing both the project itself in-deep and also knowing how to tutor students to help them achieve the most.
