It's coming up to the time of year where Google fund students to work
on open source projects.

As far as I know, none of us qualify as funded students, but if you
know of anyone suitable please pass the message on.  We do, however,
have several experienced, personable developers who might make good

So I thought I'd send this in case you, or anyone you know, would like
to help out.

Subject: Calling All Google Summer of Code Mentors


I am working on the application for The Perl Foundation and Parrot
Foundation to participate in Google Summer of Code 2010 [0]. GSoC is a
program where Google funds eligible students to hack on open source
projects for a summer. It is a great opportunity for the students and
the communities that mentor them. You also may be interested in this
summary of our involvement last year [1]. Our application will be
submitted by the end of this week.

Please join us in getting prepared for this year. There is a page for
possible mentors to volunteer [2]* as well as a page for project ideas
[3]. If you would like to help with the wiki, our main GSoC page [4]
is the best place to start. You are also invited to join our mailing
list [5] and come ask question in #soc-help on .




* If you listed yourself as a mentor last year and you are not
interested this year, please remove yourself from the page.
