Hi Serge and Peter - HOT is planning to apply for GSoC as well, see my
previous email to the list [1]. We don't want by any mean overlap
efforts, but instead collaborate if there are projects that could
benefit both HOT and the OSM community in general. Let us know if you
see anything that may be more relevant to the humanitarian OSM
mapping, and please add it to the list here [2]

The main part of the organization application - which is due in 7 days
- is a list of proposed project ideas, with details for what each one
requires. See more information here [3]. In addition you have to
answer a list of about 11 questions [4].
