Hi Karan,

thanks for your interest in JdeRobot. Finally our organization has been
accepted for GSoC-2020. We will update soon the programming tests of our
candidate selection process for GSoC-2020. Feel free to directly contact
the potential mentors of the projects you are interesting in, in order to
better write your proposal.

The programming tests are required regardless the project, no candidate
will be accepted without them. The quality of the solutions are the most
important factor we take into account for selecting the candidates.

While we update the 2020 programming tests, maybe you may play with
JdeRobot Academy [3] performing some robotics exercises. Recording videos
with your exercise solutions and uploading them in a tweet
mentioning @JdeRobot would be nice too.

The right link to the archive of mailing list is [1], but there is
something wrong as you said, it is forbidden. I will take a look at it.
Anyway, there has been no much communication through the mailing list
lately, as most of it has been performed on the GitHub repositories,
through the issues and pull-requests.

Yes, wiki.jderobot.org is the old JdeRobot webpage. Now it is placed on
jderobot.github.io and https://jderobot.org is redirected there. Feel free
to report any bug in the organization webpage creating the corresponding
issue in this repo [2].
