if you're considering to apply for a project at this year's GSoC: Proposals need to be pushed into the system (summerofcode.withgoogle.com) within the next day or so ("ends 25 March, 2016 at 19:00 UTC" according to https://developers.google.com/open-source/gsoc/faq#when_can_students_apply_f...). Not a draft, not a Google doc somewhere, but a real published "PDF proposal" (as they call it on my dashboard).
Based on previous experience, the GSoC team is quite adamant in enforcing the deadlines with no exceptions (unless they screw up somehow; I wouldn't count on that), so make sure your proposal is in good standing in time. Don't wait for the last minute either, their system may be a bit crowded then.
If things go wrong for you at this point, there's nothing we (coreboot GSoC project admins and mentors) can do about it.
