Summer of Code 2008 - call for ideas, mentors
The deadline for Google's summer of code applications from mentor organizations is fast approaching and I need your help to keep perl from getting left behind like it did last year. The wiki page has links where you can post your ideas for students and signup to be a mentor. Please post your ideas and signup before March 8th -- to increase our chances of getting accepted, we need to demonstrate a significant pool of willing mentors and lots of potential projects to inspire students.
If you speak for a large Perl project, consider volunteering yourself as a manager. I would like to delegate most of the cat-herding, as the Perl community (and the number of projects) is quite large.
Contact Eric Wilhelm (ewilhelm at cpan dot org) or join us in #soc on irc.perl.org if you would like to be a project manager or have questions about mentoring. Stay tuned for more details.
