Google Summer of Code 2008

GSoC 2008 is on, and Umit is willing to apply and participate once again this year. We're calling every student able to code to apply for a project on Umit Project.

This year, we have a lot of work to do, and the ideas are here: http://www.umitproject.org/ideas. Also, we've described at that page some selection critireas that we'll be using this year, and some tips to create a highly interesting proposal and increase student's chances of getting in this year.

I'm looking forward to have you working with us this year!
