Honestly, I was disappointed too. However, this project along with other Plone projects was selected for GSoC through the Python Foundation. Therefore, one can say, Plone is selected for GSoC, indirectly.
I see, thank you for informing us. It's quite understandable, and I apologize for not telling you earlier in this month., All the best, and have fun during GSoC. However, if you change your mind or know someone who might be interested, you can refer them to this page.
Great, I'm looking forward to seeing your contributions. Btw, is this your final year at Amrita University? If no, how much years do you have left?
