For the past few years, Google have run an annual "Summer of Code".
Last year, Perl missed out on the opportunity to have Google pay for
students to work on interesting code.  If you'd like to get involved
with making things happen this year, read the message below.

Subject: [pm_groups] Summer of Code -- volunteers needed

Hi all,

Volunteer pledge drive!  Please forward this to your local PM groups.

TPF needs volunteers to make summer of code happen this year.  It sounds 
like the administrators got stretched too thin in 2005 and 2006, and we 
really didn't have ourselves together in 2007.  So, I'm proposing a 
departmental structure under a TPF umbrella, which will localize the 
cat-herding effects within various large projects (so far, parrot and 
Catalyst appear to be on board with this.)  I would like to demonstrate 
that we have our act together this year, so we need to get a solid pool 
of administrative volunteers and mentors together before the 8th.

Administrative needs:

  (Contact ewilhelm at or join #soc on

  * backup administrator (reduce the bus number)

  * Department heads for p5p, "modules", etc

  * Suggestions about department structure

Mentors and project ideas needed:

We need to get these pages populated before March 8th or it is quite 
likely to be a no-go.
Potential mentors, please add yourselves and your project ideas here:

If you hate wikis as much as I do, please visit this handy form and I 
will batch the wiki edits on your behalf.

We who cut mere stones must always be envisioning cathedrals.
