This surprised me when I saw the list of projects. Do you know why TPF didn't get in? Were they not accepted? Or did they not apply? Or a combination of the two?

GSOC 2012 is upon us. If any members of the Parrot community are
enrolled as students and want to get paid to hack on parrot for the
summer, please consider applying. You need to be over 18 and enrolled
as a student somewhere. "Non-traditional" older students may apply as
well. Students who have done GSOC in previous years are welcome to
participate again.

I've heard from a handful of prospective students so far, but would
really like to hear from more. The proposal deadline is April 6 (Next
Friday). The best proposals are drafted, receive feedback and are
iterated upon before final submission, so now is the time to get
started.

Also please put the word out. Let friends, families, coworkers and
neighbors know about the program. People get money and Parrot gets
code, so more applicants and more projects create benefit for
everybody involved. Feel free to send any interested students to me
(or any other mentor) for information.

Also since TPF didn't get into GSOC this year, Parrot is willing to
host Rakudo-related projects.

As an ecosystem there is lots of work that we need and lots more than
we want, so we can definitely find projects to suit most student
interests and skill sets.

Thanks,

They did apply and were rejected. A GSOC IRC meeting to discuss
rejection reasons has probably already happened, but I haven't seen a
summary.

Sorry, I didn't mean to stir this all up again. I retract my query in hopes it will stanch the impending meta-discussions.

Thanks,

Google seems to have gone for some new blood and dumped some old timers to
make room; dunno if this applies to TPF, I know MacPorts got rejected
solely on that basis though.
