I’m happy to announce that the openSUSE Project has been accepted to Googleâ€™s Summer of Code 2008! Now the real fun begins!
Weâ€™re now in the â€œinterim periodâ€ for students to discuss application ideas with mentoring organizations. (Thatâ€™d be us.) Students will then have from March 24th through March 31st to apply to Google. See our ideas page, and Googleâ€™s SoC 2008 FAQ for more info and timeline.
Kudos to Google for acting quickly on this â€” applications for organizations were due last Wednesday, and I was notified this afternoon that we had been accepted. Thatâ€™s pretty speedy, given the number of applications Iâ€™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.
