Attention students, time is running out:

If you are a student and interested in Open Source, now is the time to 
act to get involved in Google's wonderful Summer of Code program.

Each year, Google offers students the opportunity to spend their summer 
vacation coding rather than flipping burgers.  You propose a project, 
and if selected, you're assigned a mentor and provided with a stipend.  
It is a competitive program to get into, but offers an amazing amount 
of real-world experience and the ability to get seriously involved in 
an open source project of your choosing.  The Perl Foundation spans a 
wide variety of projects including Perl 5, Perl 6, and Parrot with many 
great mentors signed-up to help you succeed.

And the deadline is fast approaching (noon (PDT) on Friday!)
