Google Google has chosen the mentoring organizations that will be participating in Google Summer of Code 2007. Most of the usual suspects made the list, as well as a few newcomers, including Haiku. Google is now accepting student applications.

FreeBSD is present, as always. Most of the past students who worked with freebsd under SoC are still writting and working on the project.

Several important pieces of software were created by the persons (mentors and students) who worked under SoC.

Yes, it's cool to see FreeBSD in there again. One of the recent FreeBSD Summer of Code projects was csup, a C rewrite of cvsup, which has turned out to be a nice improvement. Another one was porting Xen.

Great stuff. This Summer of Code project is a very cool thing.
