Steve McIntyre wrote on debian-devel-announce list about this years Summer of Code program, Guess, I should pitch in and do something this year.
Google are running their Summer of Code programme again this year, and if we want to take part again we need to apply between March 3rd and March 12th. If we're accepted as a mentoring organisation, then students will be able to apply to work with us up until the 1st April.
I'm volunteering to be an admin again, and I'll deal with making the application for Debian as an organisation. Beyond that, some more admins would be useful to help out later on. If you'd like to help, let me know ASAP!
Then we'll need mentors and ideas for the programme itself. As in previous years, the easiest place for us to collect those is in the wiki. Please fill your ideas in there. Last year's suggestions for projects are still in the wiki if you're looking for inspiration, but *please* don't just copy things across wholesale!
