Re: [Xen-devel] Projects for Google Summer of Code

We will definitely apply to be a GSoC mentoring org and we are likely to get 
accepted (we have been in the last 2 years; there is no reason why we won't get 
accepted this year). 

We do not have a project list yet. We are starting to brainstorm. It is 
entirely OK for a student to propose a project  idea.  Once we know that Xen 
has been accepted as a mentoring organisation we will form a committee to 
select the most promising project ideas. We will be much more careful with our 
projects this year: some of the projects last year were too ambitious for 

Watch the blog and mailing list. You may get a better feeling of what is 
interesting (assuming you want to propose a project yourselves). Also of course 
if we know a student and know that he/she can deliver the project, you have an 
advanyage over somebody we never heard of.

Hope this helped

There will most likely be some... Or at least Xen.org will probably submit some 
project, then it all depends on them being approved. :-)

This is always something nice to hear. :-)

Ok then, I think you can keep monitoring GSoC Website and also this mailing 
list, as I think updates will be announced here when they become available.
