Subject: [Epo-members-announce] Google Summer of Code: Students and
To: m.ke...@shadowcat.co.uk, wa...@workalone.co.uk, gee...@googlegroups.com
Hi All, 
As you all know the Google Summer of Code gives students the chance to
involve themselves with an open source project and this year the
efforts on behalf of The Perl Foundation (TPF) are being run by
Florian Ragwitz (Rafl).
The first stage of this process (the accepting of the mentoring
organisation) has passed and the TPF have been accepted. You can now
to view more details.
I am now asking for your help in spreading the message about the TPF
and in looking for students to join in with this year's event. If you
could pass this message on to any mailing list you are on, or share it
with appropriate locations so that we can make this year the most
successful year for Perl ever it would be much appreciated.
The main site for the Google Summer of Code is:
http://www.google-melange.com/, a timeline for participation can be
found at http://www.google-melange.com/document/show/gsoc_program/google/gsoc2011/timeline.
As you can see the student participation period opens on 28th March,
so we have just one week to get the word around.
Some prospective project ideas for this year can be found at:
http://epo.means.no/gsoc2011/ideas, though i must stress that a
student can suggest any idea they wish to the mentoring org.
If anyone wishes to join in and be a mentor for this year then please
contact Rafl a.s.a.p.
 I apologise for the cross posting that anyone receives, I am
simply trying to get as broad an audience as possible.
