Every proposal must be attached to an organization (e.g. CERN, Fermilab…) and to a project (e.g. ROOT, GeantV…). If you add your own proposal yourself, be sure add the appropriate
project attributes (not case sensitive) in the front-matter section of the proposal. See next sections if you need to add a new organization or project but if you use an existing project and organization for your proposal you don’t have to do anything else that what was described above.
Proposals are attached to aproject (e.g. ROOT, CMS…). If you want to add a project for your proposal, you need to create
a MD file describing your project in
_gsocprojects/2018 directory (must start with
look at ROOT project for an example).
This is a very simple file, containing only a front matter section that defines the attributes of
your organization. The 2 mandatory attributes are
project (your project name) and
layout (which must be
In addition you can use 2 optional attributes:
title: the name of the project to use in the page title. By default,
projectattribute is used.
description: a description of your project that will be added before the list of proposals attached to the project.
It can be several lines: look at the example for detailed syntax. The content is a standard Markdown text idented by at least one space (the number is not important but must be the same for all lines).
logo: the logo file name in directory
A proposal is attached to a project by its attribute
project that must match (not case sensitive) the
attribute defined in project MD file. This attribute can be a single value or a list. For a list, use the following
syntax in the front matter section:
project: - ROOT - GeantV
Proposals are attached to an organization (e.g. CERN, Fermilab…). If you are a new organization, you need to create
a MD file describing your organization in
gsoc directory. This is a very simple file, containing only a
front matter section that defines the attributes of your organization.
A proposal is attached to an organization by its attribute
organization that must match (case insensitive) the
organization attribute defined in organization MD file. This attribute can be a single value or a list. For a
list, use the following syntax in the front matter section:
organization: - CERN - Fermilab
To create a new organization, copy _gsocorgs/2018/cern.md, create a file for your organization and edit its contents as appropriate.
