I'd like to share the following news by Zonker also here:
I'm happy to announce that the openSUSE Project has been accepted to
Google’s Summer of Code 2008! Now the real fun begins!
We’re now in the “interim period” for students to discuss
application ideas with mentoring organizations. (That’d be us.)
Students will then have from March 24th through March 31st to apply
to Google. See our ideas page
), and Google’s SoC 2008
) for more
info and timeline.
Kudos to Google for acting quickly on this — applications for
organizations were due last Wednesday, and I was notified this
afternoon that we had been accepted. That’s pretty speedy, given the
number of applications I’m sure they had to read through.
Discussion about openSUSE's participation in Google's SoC 2008 is most
appropriate on the opensuse-project mailing list,
