Russell has posted details of the Google Summer of Code program which will be running again this year:
Google's Summer of Code (GSoC) program is on again for 2010. The organization application period is March 8th - March 12th. I plan on putting in an application for the Asterisk project again this year. In the mean time, I would like everyone to think about a couple of things.
First, I'd like those that are committers in the Asterisk project to consider your interest and availability for being a mentor. If you'd like to discuss this in any detail, feel free to contact me directly.
Second, we need to build a project ideas list. Projects that are good candidates for this list are very well defined and are appropriate in scope for a student with programming experience, but potentially little or no Asterisk experience to complete in a Summer. Feel free to throw out ideas now, but I will also bring it up again closer to the application date.
