[FreeBSD-Announce] FreeBSD Summer of Code Projects Announced

The FreeBSD Project is pleased to announce its participation in the
Google "Summer of Code" program designed to introduce students to open
source software development.

The FreeBSD Project received over 350 applications, amongst which 18
projects have been selected for funding.

Unfortunately, due to the limited number of spots available, we were
unable to fund many first rate applications.  However, we encourage
students to work together with us all year round.  The FreeBSD Project
is always willing to help mentor students learn more about operating
system development through our normal community mailing lists and
development forums.  Contributing to an open source software project
is a valuable component of a computer science education and great
preparation for a career in software development.

More information about the student projects is available from the
FreeBSD Summer of Code Wiki here :


The Wiki will soon be updated with information about downloading the
work in progress with CVSup.

We'd like to close by thanking Google for their generosity and
congratulating the 18 talented students below.
