Google Summer of Code 2019 has been announced:
Applications for interested open source project organizations open on January 15, 2019, and student applications open March 25.
poliastro and other projects of the Open Astrodynamics initiative (see Kicking off OpenAstrodynamics with your kind help) will probably participate under mentor organizations such as OpenAstronomy or Aerospace Research.
Does Libre Space Foundation intend to participate this year? I am not sure if I will have enough spare time but at least I would like to lend a hand in clearing any barriers for LSF to be accepted.
Of course if anyone wants to participate with poliastro, let me know
