Python Software Foundation seeks mentors and students for GoogleSummer of Code

This spring and summer, Google will again provide stipends
for students (18+, undergraduate thru PhD programs) to write
new open-source code.

The Python Software Foundation (PSF)

http://www.python.org/psf/

will again act as a sponsoring organization in Google's Summer of Code,
matching mentors and projects benefiting Python and Python users.
Projects can include work on the core Python language, programmer
utilities, libraries, packages, frameworks related to Python, or
other Python implementations like Jython, PyPy, or IronPython.
Please add your project ideas to the existing set at

http://wiki.python.org/moin/SummerOfCode

Mentoring instructions are also on this page. The deadline is soon,
so please sign up as a mentor early. If you are a student
considering a project, you should start deciding now. Feel free
to ask questions on py********@python.org

The main page for the Summer of Code is

http://code.google.com/summerofcode.html

At the bottom are links to StudentFAQ, MentorFAQ, and TermsOfService. The
first two have the timeline. Note that student applications are due
between May 1, 17:00 PST and May 8, 17:00 PST.

People interested in mentoring a student though PSF are encouraged to
contact me, Neal Norwitz at nn******@gmail.com. People unknown to Guido
or myself should find a couple of people known within the Python community
who are willing to act as references.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to meeting
many new mentors and students. Let's improve Python!

Cheers,
