I definitely think having something to publicly announce GSoC 2017 applications opening would be an excellent idea. Since this would be for a wider community of people who aren't just contributors, the Magazine seems like a great place to put this on Monday. (I'm behind on the publishing schedule for this coming week due to travel.)
It would be great if a GSoC admin or another community member could put this together, I know this would be a great and relevant topic to announce on the Magazine on Monday! I know I won't have the time to do this before Monday otherwise I'd jump on it.

Last week was a pretty solid week on the magazine (March 6th - March 12th),
with just over 57K pageviews -- up from ourprevious weeks of around 50K. WE
had a handfulof well performing articles that helped us along here.
The 3 articles we published this week were the Chromium article by
stickster, the EasyScreenCast article, and the EPEL5 EOL article by smooge.
# Next Weeks tentative schedule #
This is up for discussion, since the meeting didnt go ahead today, but here
is a Draft schedule:
Monday: Fedora as a VirtualBox guest:
I can get this one ready for publication by monday, and do a Featured Image
For wednesday & friday, there are a couple of pitches in there that seem
awesome, but are a not written yet:
* Nautilus Scripts (Alessio Ciregia)
* Fedora Games Spin (Georg Hasibether)
Alessio & Georg, what are the chances that these articles might be ready to
review and post on Wednesday or Friday? If low, we might have to do up a
couple more of the starter pitches for these days.
The meeting was super quick, as we deferred making the schedule for the
week here on the list.
The tentative schedule that was drafted was:
* Monday 13th -- EPEL5 EOL article -- have emailed smooge about getting
this together, and I can edit it Sunday / Monday
* Wednesday 15th -- I am going to write up the artile in the starter
pitches on the Easy ScreenCast GNOME extenstion.
* Friday 17th was kinda undecided between the Ovirt artilcle and the
Virtualbox guest article. any more information on these would be helpful to
I've written a new pitch: "Nautilus: how to integrate a shell script": <https://wp.me/p3XX0v-4iU>
I don't like this title, maybe someone have a better idea.
In addition: do you think this article could be of interest?
As usual, sorry for my bad English.
I'm Ankit R Gadiya. I'm 17, I'm a linux and open-source enthusiast. I'd like to contribute to Fedora Project whenever I can. And I'd like to start it by writing articles for Fedora Magazine. So, I'd love to become the author of Fedora Magazine.
As a matter of Fact I've already wrote my first article and Pitched. TBH I'm not very familiar with the process though as this is the first time I'm going to write articles collaboratively. I do write my blog though (https://blog.ankitrgadiya.in)
As a matter of fact I already wrote my first article.
Brief: Its about getting hands on i3-wm on Fedora machine. It also include few must have configurations to make day-to-day tasks easier.
