Dear OSRF & ROS friends,

The Mobile Robot Programming Toolkit (MRPT) project has been accepted
[1] in GSoC 2016!

Since some of the proposed projects deal with wrapping existing
algorithms as ROS packages, I wondered whether some OSRF members, or
other interested parties, would be interested in participating as
mentors or, at least, backup mentors.
We still do not know how many slots will be assigned to the
organization, but I would feel more comfortable with more mentoring
volunteers, just in case :-)

Please, feel free to distribute this among interested students as well.

For more info see the GSoC ideas page in [2]. Projects #2, #3, #4 & #5
are the ones focused on ROS.
