I don't know how to use the suggestion template, but Qt needs a unified approach to Notifications (Push on mobile, Desktop), if it is not already in the works.

> Hi all,
> The Qt Project has been accepted as mentor organization for GSoC. Yay!
> https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/organizations/5388456415461376/
> We now should collect ideas for projects that students could work on, we 
> started here:
> https://wiki.qt.io/Google_Summer_of_Code/2018/Project_Ideas
> For students it's a good idea to start talking to people in areas you are 
> interested in already. We have not yet set the criteria for being accepted, 
> but I imagine you should at least have pushed a change or two to Qt's 
> codereview and have some C++ knowledge (or willingness to learn), depending on 
> the task.
> http://wiki.qt.io/Qt_Contribution_Guidelines will help you getting started.
> Check out KDE's guidelines, many things apply to Qt (both for students and 
> mentors):
> https://community.kde.org/GSoC
> I'd like to invite everyone to join #qt-gsoc on freenode.
> Ask questions about procedure in #qt-gsoc, programming questions then in #qt-
> labs on IRC/freenode. This mailing list is also a good place to discuss about 
> potential work this summer.
> People that have been active in developing Qt can of course be mentors, let me 
> know if you want to be part of the mentor team, signing up for mentoring is 
> not a commitment yet. Note that you cannot be mentor and student at the same 
> time. We will aim to have at least two mentors for each project and that 
> mentoring does take time and commitment, it's not an easy task (not to 
> discourage you, the more mentors we have, the better).
> The general overview page for Qt GSoC is here:
> https://wiki.qt.io/Google_Summer_of_Code/2018
> Right now the organization page for GSoC shows "The Qt Company", which is a 
> mistake we made when applying for the program. It of course should be the "Qt 
> Project".
> This is the first time we'll participate in GSoC, so I don't expect us to get 
> too many slots, we'll find out as we go, I do hope we'll have some great 
> applications and get interesting things into Qt.
> Cheers,
> Frederik
