I have to say it comes as a surprise for me, since I didn't realize
that the SoP homepage  pointed to Tor's projects page , that
indeed lists Tails. Given that, depending on what exact project you
want to work on, we may be in a position to find a mentor for you on
our team, or not. I hope it'll work, but sadly, I doubt we'll be able
to clarify this before you have told us what exactly you would like to

1. Read the SoP homepage  entirely. It actually answers this
question of yours.
2. Come up with a great project. Once you have an idea or two, feel
free to come discuss it on tails-dev at boum.org: we can help you
adjust it to better match your skills and desires, and the Tails
project's current needs.
3. Send your application as instructed on that page. When you'll do
that, please Cc tails at boum.org (our core team's private
mailing-list) when emailing tor-assistants@, so that we're in the
loop. Please include as much specifics as you can regarding your
past experience with Debian packaging and build systems (pointers
to actual VCS repositories and code would help).
* Was your GSoC application with CentOS accepted?
* At some point, I'd like to be put in touch with the mentor(s) you
had when you were working with CERN during GSoC 2013. This can wait
until you've reached step #2 as described above.
