Dear @/all FOSSASIA is again in GSoC! This is great and we hope we will see many applications. The number of slots an organization gets can vary a lot and we never know in advance. So, it is very difficult to say which project gets a slot. Also some projects might receive more quality applications than others. So, we would adjust the number of slots. For Google it could also be relevant how many applications a project receives. More good applications would show Google that a certain software project is very relevant and they might provide more slots. If FOSSASIA receives more applications than others then we might get more slots. However, this is just one indication and community standing and other factors are important. In any case, please help to spread the news and support students to apply for a project with FOSSASIA.
To make it easier for us we always try to come up with a general starting point for slot distribution according to FOSSASIA's priorities and some of the core mentors input (even if they change later). Some of the projects are not listed yet on the ideas page. So, we will need to add them too, but students can always come up with their own idea. In any case over the years we achieved to focus more on actual features and bug resolution. Simply updating Readmes, adding FAQ and about pages, updating to the next version of a libary etc. is not enough for a project. We would like to see improvements and features in an application that makes it more usable and more stable.
If we would get 35 slots this year the following could be a potential way to distribute slots.

@xeon-zolt you look onto the issue fossasia/meilix-generator#131
looked ! you want to add custom script option to generator ?
@abishekvashok I read the one here: https://github.com/fossasia/meilix
The README contains information mostly helpful for setting it up and contributing. But no clue is provided as to how it looks or behaves. I already am on a linux distro (Ubuntu).
The installation instructions for running locally show Lubuntu. I'm a bit confused. Is there a video or article I can read to get an overview of the OS?
Great to see you here:
Please checkout the github repo. https://github.com/fossasia/meilix
Read it and lemme know if you find some obstacles in understanding.
